Wing & Prayer ‘pleasure and pain’ North Canterbury Riesling 2017

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 12-Oct-2018
Full, even, light golden-hued yellow colour, with slight lemon-green tints. The nose is softly full with white and yellow florals and citrus fruits interwoven with a layering of musky botrytis. The fruit shows slightly cooler-spectrum mineral notes, but is in balance with the botrytis. Medium-sweet to taste and light-bodied, the palate has rich flavours of yellow florals and tangerines, melded with the honied and musky botrytis. The flavours form a rounded core with some presence and phenolic textures, and the mouthfeel is refreshing with crisp, balanced acidity. The wine flows to an elegant finish. This is a medium-sweet botrytis-influenced Riesling with floral, citrus, honey and musk flavours on a palate with good core and fresh acidity. Serve as an aperitif, with mildly spicy cuisine and fruit over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked fruit with dried botrytis, indigenous yeast cool-fermented to 9.1% alc. and 48.4 g/L RS. 17.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP $TBA
