Waipara River Estate ‘Single Vineyard Release’ Waipara Valley Noble Riesling 2013

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 08-Jun-2015
Full, golden straw-yellow colour with some depth. This has a full, soft nose open and accessible, but with good depth, showing ripe yellow florals, citrus fruits and honey, with marmalade botrytis. Some volatile lift enhances the fruit aromatics, and the nose reveals notes of caramel and crystallised fruits. This has nectar-like richness. Very sweet to taste and medium-bodied, lifted exotic citrus and tropical fruit flavours feature with yellow florals, honey and marmalade botrytis. The mouthfeel is unctuously rich with a sense of decadence, and fresh, near-racy acidity lends a slippery mothfeel and flow. This has energy and tension with good balance, and the wine carries a positive core to a sustained, honied finish. This is a fresh, lifted and unctuous noble Riesling dessert wine with exotic citrus, honey and marmalade flavours. Match with fruit desserts, crème caramel and blue cheeses over the next 5+ years. Fruit picked at 40° Brix. Winemaker: Mat Donaldson. (375 ml) 18.0/20 Jun 2015 RRP $25.00
