Desert Heart Central Otago Riesling 2010

Riesling from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 10-Sep-2013
Hand-picked fruit from the company’s Felton Road vineyard, WBP and cool-fermented with indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc. and 7.2 g/L RS. Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, pale on rim. The bouquet is softly full and rich with attractively lifted lime and lemon fruit entwined with honeysuckle and minerally notes and a delicate toasty element. Off-dry to taste and elegantly proportioned, bright, bold and lively lime and yellow floral fruit flavours are enriched by honied notes. Nuances of citrus zest, minerals and a toasty layer add detail. The palate features a fine, textural thread and crisp acidity, providing a phenolic-based line that leads to a very long, dry finish showing toast, honey and flowers. This is an attractive floral and honey flavoured off-dry Riesling with some textures, just beginning to develop some toasty development notes. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian influenced cuisine over the next 4+ years. Winemaker: Jane Docherty. 17.5+/20 Sep 2013 RRP $24.95 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
