Pegasus Bay Aria Late Picked Riesling 2014


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.
