Wild Earth Riesling 2021, North Otago

Riesling from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 29-Jun-2022
Bright, even, pale yellow. This has a soft, fragrant bouquet with white floral lime flowers intertwined with lime and apple. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, aromas of lime, apple, and tangerine have a taut core, melded with a hint of citrus peel and floral element. The fruit is juicy and concentrated, shows weight, and chalky minerals fill the palate and add texture. The acidity is vibrant and focused, softened by a touch of sweetness, lends a crisp, lingering finish. This vibrant, fresh Riesling possesses ample citrus fruit entwined with floral and citrus peel bringing a long, crisp mineral finish. Match with pad Thai and seafood over the next 6+ years. The fruit was sourced from a single vineyard near Lake Waitaki, handpicked, whole bunch pressed to stainless steel, fermented to 12% alc, 8.9 g/l RS. Vegan friendly. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) June 2022 RRP $28
