Te Mania Riesling 2016
Regular price $21.99 NZD
When young our Riesling produces fresh, lively wines which are great for relaxed summertime drinking; however this wine also has a wonderful ability to age, allowing a wider spectrum of flavours to unfold.
Tasting: Honeysuckle and citrus/lime characters on the nose with some underlying mineral notes. The citrus characters follow through onto the palate with rich lime and citrus fruit flavours, some delicious honey notes, a mineral background and a long fresh finish.
Wine Making: Beautifully ripe fruit was harvested in April and grapes were whole bunch pressed and the juice cool fermented to preserve primary fruit characters. A small amount of residual sugar was retained to provide balance to the natural fruit acids.
Diet: this wine is suitable for a vegan diet.
Analysis: Alcohol 12.5%, Residual Sugar 9.2 g/L, Acidity 7.4 g/L
DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL - Sakura Wine Awards
It is immediately appealing on the nose showing baked apple, spice, fig and lemon peel aromas, followed by a juicy palate that is beautifully fruited and finely textured with subtle sweetness, which is well balanced by refreshing acidity. The wine offers delightful fruit flavours with subtle toasty complexity, making it a fabulous drink. 90 points, 4½ stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
