Neudorf Riesling Waimea Plains Brightwater 2009
Ethereal, elegant and graceful – Riesling is so balletic – it is intense but delicate, weighty but light. Fruity but refreshing. This 2009 carries hint of guava hidden among flowers and citrus. It has a perfumed and focused entry leading to wine which carries gently through the palate and with a fine juicy finish. I think it a “little black dress” unstated, refined and appropriate on many occasions. It shakes its booty just a little at the mention of pan fried cod or gorgons of monkfish.
Editorial Reviews for Neudorf Riesling Waimea Plains Brightwater
Clear and a bit wild on the nose with some golden raspberry tones balanced by mineral accents in a fruity yet focused style. Quite obviously sweet in the mouth with the weight of a Spätlese. The citrus flavors have a light honeyed edge to them and remain fresh and vibrant right through the moderately long finish, which takes on precise notes of pink grapefruit. 88pts
External Reviews for Neudorf Riesling Waimea Plains Brightwater
Off alluvial gravel soils that have much in common with Marlborough, this off-dry Riesling features the bright, fruity notes common to the region, combining green apple and citrus aromas and flavors with a lean, chalky texture. Pretty, but not that concentrated. Imported by Epic Wines.
