Te Mania Riesling 2018
Regular price $22.99 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.
Certified Organic: Asure Quality.
Diet: this wine is suitable for a vegan diet.
Analysis: Alcohol 12.5%, Residual Sugar 10.3 g/L, Acidity 7.5 g/L
Wonderfully fruited and delightfully fragrant, the bouquet shows lemon curd, apricot, rockmelon and floral aromas, followed by a vibrant palate that is juicy and lively. The wine offers excellent fruit purity and focused mouthfeel, backed by subtle sweetness and bright acidity, finishing lingering and delicious.
