Pegasus Bay Aria Late Picked Riesling 2014

$41.00 $36.90

On release the wine is a bright lemon-gold. The abundant aromas and flavours suggest ripe citrus fruits, especially limes and mandarins, yellow fleshed peaches, apricots, guavas and lychees. There is an overlay of comb honey, honeysuckle and jasmine. While rich, luscious and sweet there is a seam of minerality and tangy acidity that provided perfect balance and draw out the lingering aftertaste. With careful cellaring the wine should develop a range of other fascinating nuances.

Description

2014 was a great botrytis year. The Riesling shrivelled up nicely and after picking during May, the grapes were gently pressed. The juice was then fermented slowly at cool temperatures to help the wine retain its vibrant fruit characters and varietal purity. At all stages, from fermentation to bottling, it was handled very carefully to help it retain a little of its natural carbon dioxide. This provides additional crispness and may result in a small amount of spritzig when first poured.
