Lamont Bendigo Central Otago Riesling 2016

Riesling from New Zealand – Otago
Review Date - 12-Jul-2018

18.5+/20

Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. The nose is firmly concentrated and intense with a strong core of lime fruit melded with suggestions of minerals and toast, unfolding white floral elements. This has depth and intensity, and is refreshing and mouthwatering. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a concentrated and firm core of lime and lemon fruit along with subtle notes of toast, minerals, white florals and honeysuckle. The palate line is smooth-flowing with fresh acidity adding to the liveliness and drive. The wine carries to a long, rich finish with is beginning to soften. This is a rich and firmly concentrated dry Riesling with intense flavours of limes and lemons, with toast and mouthwatering minerals, plus white floralson an energised palate line. Serve as an aperitif, with seafood and Asian fare over the next 5 years. Hand-picked fruit, clone GM110, from Bendigo, WBP and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 11.7% alc. and 5.5 g/L RS, TA 8.6 g/L and pH 2.8. Certified organic fruit. 70 cases made. 18.5+/20 Jul 2018 RRP $27.00
