Urlar Gladstone Riesling 2014

Riesling from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 19-Jan-2017
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, paler on the rim. The nose is harmoniously concentrated with deep and intense aromas of limes and ripe citrus fruits interwoven with yellow florals and toasty secondary complexities, unfolding nuances of honeysuckle and minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features a stylishly concentrated core of lime fruit entwined with layers of toast and notes of honey and minerals. The fruit possesses subtle richness and grows in intensity, and is enlivened by fresh, brisk acidity. The wine flows along a fine-textured line of fruit extract with a little grip, leading to an elegant, nuanced, dry finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, moderately rich dry Riesling with lime and complex toasty flavours on a lively palate with a fine-textured flow. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and Asian fare over the next 4-5 years. Hand-picked fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 6.5 g/L RS, TA 8.4 g/L and pH 2.9, the wine aged on lees. Certified BioGro organic. 18.0+/20 Jan 2017 RRP $24.00
