Te Whare Ra Riesling D

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2012 Vintage) says
Another lovely edition of this old-vine riesling. The nose has plenty of floral perfume, really focused and precise: apple and sweet basil, white peach and melon. The palate s beautifully textural and shows great concentration, lime and stone fruit flavours. Bright acidity and terrific weight here, and a lingering nectarine finish.

‘D’ is Te Whare Ra’s dry riesling from vines dating from the late seventies and early eighties (ancient by Marlborough standards). Impressively poised and immaculately clean, with a mid-palate generosity that makes for an enticingly approachable alternative to Australia’s more steely dry riesling style. It’s accented with precise granny smith apple, lemon zest and lime fruit, with a delicate air of lime blossom, coasting long and taut into a finish accented by well-defined acidity.

The D stands for 'dry' in this case, but it's not austere. Really generous flavours and textures make it one very attractive proposition. Smells of nectarine and ripe peach, with hints of lime and stony minerals too. The palate's packing fleshy texture; bright, ripe acidity holds flavours long and juicy. Terrific.
