Aspiring Flats Central Otago Riesling 2018

Style Profile

Orange blosom, peach, off-dry, great length

TASTING NOTES

Handpicked, whole-bunch pressed single-vineyard wine from the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago. Lifted and fragrant in a ripe stonefruit/tropical spectrum reflecting the warmer vintage golden peach and orange blossom with orange zest, jasmine and honeysuckle. The palate is lush and generous with loads of flavour held in check by a thread of C/O acidity. Off-dry with great length.
