Wild Earth Central Otago Riesling 2017

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 16-Oct-2018
Bright, very pale straw colour, with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is very tightly bound and elegant, with good depth and intensity of lime fruit entwined with white florals and mouthwatering mineral elements, unfolding suggestions of fine, fresh herbs. Medium-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate is taut and initially a little unforthcoming, but reveals concentrated and refined flavours of lime fruit, white florals and minerals. The fruit is underlined by fine acidity reflecting low pH with its softness. The fruit flows along a fine-textured line of fruit extract and subtle phenolics, unfolding some honeysuckle and nuances of toast, as it carries to a finish with rich fruit and mineral elements. This is a taut, medium-dry Riesling with lime, floral and mineral flavours that blossom as it flows. Serve as an aperitif, and with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese fare over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked Bendigo fruit, WBP and cool-fermented to 12.0% alc. and 10 g/L RS, TA 8.2 g/L and pH 2.98. 18.0/20 Oct 2018 RRP $28.00
