Wild Earth Riesling 2019, Central Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 25-Jun-2021
Bright, even pale yellow colour. The nose is captivating with concentrated nuances of limes, mandarin peels, apple, honey interweave lime flowers. Medium-bodied, off-dry to taste, vibrant flavours of lime, apple melded with elderflower and honey. The palate has a smooth line with soft yet vibrant acidity, along with the texture of apple skins flow to a long, lingering finish. The wine has a good concentration of flavours, subtle spices unveiling on the finish. A classic Central Otago Riesling with concentration and length. Match with seafood with creamy sauce and spiced pork chops over the next 6+ years. The fruit was sourced from Bendigo terrace, whole bunch pressed, cool-fermented in stainless steel to 12% alc, 10.6 g/l RS. Unfined, vegan friendly. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) June 2021 RRP $28
