Yealands Estate SV Riesling 2018 Awatere Valley, Marlborough
Distinctive and forward aromatics of Riesling - varietal & fruity with aromas of red and green apple, mandarin and white peach. Quite florals with a sweet jasmine aroma then wet rock mineral layer. Crisp, tense, fruity and dry on the palate with an intense acidity contrasted by a core of citrus and white fleshed tree fruits. Youthful, well-made and lengthy. Can be enjoyed immediately with food but also cellar worthy with at least 5 years lay-down time. Best from 2020 through 2025.
