Wild Earth Riesling 2018, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 11-Sep-2020
Bright, pale yellow with a very light lime hue, even colour throughout. The bouquet is soft and refined, nuances of green apple, lime and zest with a subtle hint of white florals, honeycomb, and penetrating flinty mineral nuances. Medium-light bodied, off-dryish to taste, the palate is refined with pleasant green apple, lime and zest, underlying powdery white pepper notes. Delicate white florals and a hint of honey entwined with minerals. The wine flows on a fine phenolic thread along with flinty minerals providing a good drive with refreshing acidity. The palate is refined and balance, showing purity and ripeness of fruit, lending a round and lingering finish. This is a refined Riesling with flavours of green apple and lime, subtle florals and honey on a mineral flow. Match with salt and pepper calamari and German Bratwurst over the next 3-4 years. Riesling fruit from a single vineyard in Bendigo, cool-fermented to 12.5% alc, 10.2 g/l RS. 18/20 pts Sept 2020 RRP $28
