Review for Wairau River (Marlborough) Riesling

By: Linda Sorensen (Christchurch) This reviewer is using their real name. Gold Medal Reviewer - Top 10 ranked wine reviewer! Has submitted over 50 reviews! Speedster - Has completed 6 first reviews!

Believe the description when it says "off dry" in character. Medium yellow/green in color, just a bit of spritz present. Nose was a bit lacking at first but developed given time in the glass to reveal pears and peaches. Again, fruit takes time to develop in the glass with tasting - initial taste was pretty much tart apples. There's a fair amount of acid - I didn't feel this was well-balanced with the rest of the wine initially but it did work well with food. I agree with the impression that this will do well with some aging. There are Rieslings I enjoyed more than this one (see reviews) as it is now. I would recommend something with a bit of cream/fat food-wise to balance the acid; we tried this with some spicy food and it did not work at all. This wine also would be great as a pre-meal sipper with some cheese and crackers.
