Waipara River Estate ‘Single Vineyard Release’ Waipara Valley Riesling 2012

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 08-Jun-2015
Bright, very pale straw colour with some lemony hues, lighter on rim. The bouquet is very elegant and tightly bound, beautifully slender in proportion, with intense and refined aromas of limes and white floral, unfolding subtle toasty secondary layers with mineral finesse. Off-dry to taste, the palate is very elegant and refined in presentation with concentrated lime and white floral favours. The fruit is entwined with balanced secondary toasty complexities, seamlessly melded, forming a very fine phenolic line. The acidity s discreet and provides excellent tension, and the wine leads toa very long, lingering nuanced finish. This is a beautifully elegant, tight and refined off-dry Riesling and excellent secondary toasty interest. Serve as an aperitif over the next 5+ years. Cool-fermented in stainless-steel. Winemaker: Kym Rayner. 18.5-/20 Jun 2015 RRP $19.00 Brilliant straw-yellow colour with light, lemon-green hues, pale on rim. The bouquet is delicate and softly fresh with pure aromas of lime fruit enhanced buy jasmine floral nuances. Medium-dry to taste, tightly bound, delicately expressed fruit flavours of limes, exotic florals and honeysuckle follow a very fine, textured, dry line on the palate. The acidity is mouthwatering and lively, enhancing the fruit richness, balancing the sweetness and provides good tension to the mouthfeel. The flavours flow to a sustained finish with lingering nuances of citrus fruits and honeysuckle. This is a very attractive, refined, off-dry Riesling with delicate lime and honeysuckle flavours. Serve as an aperitif over the next 4-5+ years. Stainless-steel fermented to 12.0% alc. 18.0+/20 Jul 2013 RRP $19.00
