Waipara River Estate ‘Single Vineyard Release’ Waipara Valley Late Harvest Riesling 2011

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 30-Jul-2013
Bright, deep golden-yellow colour with some orange hues, lighter on edge. The bouquet is well-concentrated and intense, with tight aromas of ripe, savoury citrus fruits, notes of raisins and crystalised fruits and oxidative nutty elements. Sweet to taste, and with good body, there are concentrated flavours of ripe, savoury, mandarins and caramelised fruit with notes of raisins, wild honey and nuts. The acidity is balanced and along with the alcohol provides good drying cut. Very fine, drying textures carry the flavours to a moderately sustained, firm finish. This is a finely concentrated and moderately sweet late harvest Riesling with citrus and raisiny flavours with nutty elements. Serve with baked desserts and cheeses over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked fruit at 33° Brix, fermented to 13.0% alc. and 100 g/L rs. (375 ml) 16.5/20 Jul 2013 RRP $24.00
