Terrace Edge ‘Liquid Geography’ North Canterbury Riesling 2018

Riesling from New Zealand – Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date - 30-Oct-2018


Bright, light straw-yellow colour with green hues and a little depth, paler edged. The nose is elegant, refined and poised, a little tight and slender in expression initially, but unveiling lime and tangerine aromas with a subtle array of exotic florals, some honeysuckle and musk. The botrytis is subtle and sits at the aromatic heart. Medium-sweet to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegant and has a softly packed core with rich flavours of ripe citrus fruits melded with honeysuckle, exotic florals and some botrytis muskiness which adds to the richness endowing some opulence. The fruit is gentle, but builds in richness, concentration and mouthfeel, and is balanced by fine acid cut. The wine flows along a smooth line, leading to a sustained finish. Serve as an aperitif, and with mildly spicy Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 4 years. Hand-picked Riesling fruit with approx. 10% botrytis, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 34 g/L RS. Certified BioGro organic. 18.5+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $20.00,
