Whitehaven Riesling 2021, Marlborough

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Dec-2021
Bright, pale yellow with a green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is softly full and vibrant, filled the glass with lime, lemongrass, minerals and citrus flower. Medium-light bodied, dry-ish to taste, a mouth-watering acid line carries lime, green apple, lime zest, interweave a subtle hint of lemongrass, lime blossom and stony minerals. The electric acid line provides vitality and length, drives a crisp, long finish. The fruit has good concentration, minerals and citrus peels added interest. This is a dry-ish, mouth-watering Riesling with a flush of citrus and minerals. Match with steamed seafood and sushi over the next 5+ years. Fruit from Wairau and Southern Valleys, 12% alc, 14.4 g/l RS. Vegan friendly. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Dec 2021 RRP $23
