Urlar Gladstone Riesling 2010

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 14-Feb-2011
The Urlar label has become synonymous with excellent, complex, character-filled Riesling wines in the short time is has existed. But then again, it is not surprising that Riesling should do so well, as it seems to be the Wairarapa's ‘next best varietal' after the proven Pinot Noir. This new Urlar release is light golden hued straw with the full, weighty expression of exotic tropical fruits, ripe citrus fruits with a touch of honey on nose and palate. Dry to taste, there is depth and mouthfeel, and good acidity to keep things sufficiently racy and allow the minerality to show. At present, there is a little reduction subduing the aromas and flavours, adding to the tightness of youth. However, wait another year, and it'll blossom, and drink well for another 4-5 years. A classically proportioned 12.5% alc. with a seemingly dry 7.1 g/L rs. 16.5+/20 Nov 2010 RRP $23.35
