Valli Waitaki Vineyard Riesling 2021, North Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 16-Jun-2022
Bright, even, pale yellow with a green sheen. This has a soft and gentle release of lime and citrus zest melded with a savoury element and minerals. Medium-light bodied, off-dry to taste, lime and mandarin core entwined with zesty spice, jasmine, sea salt and crushed rocks. Crunchy minerals flow along with acid tension and good energy, and a touch of sweetness adds flesh and broadens the palate. The wine has a long, focused and crisp finish. This crisp Riesling shows excellent balance, features crunchy minerals and jasmine with a strong citrus core. Match with river trout and shellfish over the next 8+ years. Fruit from Estate vineyard on Grant's Road, fermented to 12% alc, 12.2 g/l RS. 19/20 pts (95 pts) June 2022 RRP $34.50
