Urlar ‘Select Parcels’ Gladstone Noble Riesling 2017

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 25-Mar-2018
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is soft and full with gently concentrated and rounded aromas of ripe tropical fruits, exotic florals, honey and marmalade along with a musky overlay, unfolding caramel elements. This is expressed with a degree of aromatic finesse and elegance. Very sweet to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a softly packed and rounded heart of opulent and decadent tropical fruit, along with notes of wild honey, marmalade and musk, unveiling some caramel elements. The mouthfeel is lively and vigorous, and richness and unctuousness, and the wine flows along a smooth line supported by subtle, underlying acidity. The flavours carry positively to a long and sustained finish of honey, caramel and musk. This is a rich and unctuous Noble Riesling with ripe tropical fruit, honey, marmalade and musk flavours with good palate energy and vigour. Match with fruit desserts and crème caramel over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit with approx. 75% botrytis infection, fermented to 11.3% alc. and 131 g/L RS, TA 8.2 g/L and pH 3.6, the wine aged 6 months in seasoned oak. (375 ml) 18.0+/20 Mar 2018 RRP $32.00
