Pisa Range Estate Pisa Central Otago Riesling 2013

Riesling from New Zealand – Otago
Review Date - 15-May-2014

18+/20

The second release of a Pisa Range Estate Riesling, fruit from the flat block, cool-fermented to 12.0% alc. and 2 g/L RS. Brilliant straw-yellow colour, lighter on rim. The nose is very fine and delicately presented with tightly bound aromas of pure lime fruit with subtle white florals, and mouthwatering minerally notes. Dry to taste and medium-light bodied, the fruit flavours of limes, mineral-infused citrus fruits, wet stones and florals are very intensely concentrated. The mouthfeel features good fruit extract with a fine-textured, firm, grainy line. Brisk but soft acidity contributes to the dryness on palate, and the flavours are carried to a very long, lingering, thirst-quenching finish. This is an elegant and tightly concentrated dry Riesling with intensity and textured linearity. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 5-6 years. 18.0+/20 May 2014 RRP $28.00
