Vynfields ‘Bliss’ Martinborough Sparkling Riesling 2012

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 27-Jan-2013
Bright straw-yellow colour, pale on rim, with persistent, moderately fine bead. The bouquet is softly concentrated with restrained aromas of lime fruit, honeysuckle, herbs and minerals. Medium-dryish to taste, elegant flavours of citrus fruit, exotic tropical fruits, musk and savoury honeysuckle are up-front in expression. The mouthfeel is softly rounded, with a good dense core, the effervescence in the background and the acidity discreet. A little fruit texture and grip is noticeable. Sherbet, honey and citrus nuances emerge and carry to a moderately long finish with lush citrus elements. This is a soft and slightly textured sparkling Riesling with citrus and honeysuckle flavours. Serve as an aperitif, or with fruit desserts over the next 2+ years. Fruit from ‘Vynfields', from 21 y.o. vines, fermented to 12.5% alc. and 23 g/L rs, the wine aged on lees 6 months and carbonated. Certified BioGro organic. 17.0+/20 Jan 2013 RRP $32.00 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
