Urlar Gladstone Noble Riesling 2016

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 16-Dec-2017
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, a little lighter on the rim. This has a fresh nose with aromas of tropical and citrus fruit with exotic floral notes, wild honey and savoury marmalade with musky botrytis nuances. The aromatics show good depth and concentration. Very sweet to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has a taut core with decadently rich and luscious flavours of ripe tropical fruits, exotic florals, honey, marmalade and musk. Savoury honeycomb hints add interest. The palate has a rounded mouthfeel with fine acid cut lending freshness, and the wine flows along a soft, smooth line, leading to a long finish. This an elegantly decadent Noble Riesling with tropical fruit, florals, honey, marmalade and musk flavours on a fresh, balanced palate. Match with fruit and baked desserts over the next 5+ years. Hand-picked fruit, 90% with botrytis and 10% shrivel, cool-fermented to 11.0% alc. and 119 g/L RS, TA 7.7 g/L and pH 3.25. Certified BioGro organic. (375 ml) 18.5/20 Dec 2017 RRP $33.00 Bright, light golden-hued yellow colour with some depth, pale edged. The nose is very elegant and refined in expression with intense and concentrated aromas of white florals and citrus fruit melded with honeysuckle, talc and musk, the botrytis to the fore, with the underlying in support. Very sweet to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate is finely concentrated with good intensity of white florals, citrus fruit, musk and honied flavours. The palate has good, firm linearity with balanced, crisp acidity lending energy and a dryish cut to the richness. The wine unfolds layers of money, beeswax and musk on the long and sustained finish. This is a finely concentrated botrytised Riesling with floral, citrus, honey and musk flavours with a firm linearity. Serve with fruit and baked desserts over the next 4-5 years. 90% botrytised and 10% shrivelled fruit, hand-picked and cool-fermented to 11.0% alc. and 120 g/L RS. Certified BioGro organic.
