Millton ‘Opou Vineyard’ Gisborne Riesling 2013

Riesling from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 17-Feb-2015
Bright, very pale straw colour, pale on rim. This has a very elegant and soft nose with finely presented limes, white and yellow florals and subtly integrated toasty nuances. This has delicacy and beauty with its softness. Medium-sweet to taste, lush flavours of citrus and tropical fruits are intermixed with honey and toasty elements. The mouthfeel is soft-textured and underlined by ripe, sift acidity. A fine, smooth core and phenolic thread guides the wine to a refined, delicate and honey-nuanced finish. This is a beautifully soft, gently luscious, delicately honied wine with 4-5+ years ahead. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Opou’ vineyard, partly WBP and a portion given skin contact, cool-fermented to 9.5% alc. and 40 g/L RS, TA 7.1 g/L and pH 3.3, the wine aged 6 months on lees. Certified BioGro organic and Demeter biodynamic. 18.5+/20 Feb 2015 RRP $29.99
