Urlar Gladstone Riesling 2013

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 12-May-2014
Cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 7.0 g/L RS, and TA 8.6 g/l and pH 2.92, the wine aged on lees. Bright straw-yellow colour with slight lemon-green hues. The nose is clean, fresh and steely, with lime and lemon fruit aromas, lifted with white floral and stonefruit notes, revealing savoury citrus, honey and toast nuances in the glass, Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate is elegantly concentrated with fruit flavours of limes and lemons along with savoury mineral elements. This has good fruit extract and the palate is carried by soft, dry textures with underlying, thirst-quenching acid drive to a sustained, citrussy finish. This is a dry, concentrated, mouth-watering Riesling with lime-like fruit and savoury nuances. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood. It will develop greater complexity over the next 5-6 years. Certified BioGro organic. 18.0/20 May 2014 RRP $27.00
