Babich Riesling Marlborough 2008
The nose is lemon, lime and florals with a touch of bottle age adding complexity and lift. The entry is apple/citrus with a juicy weight that pushes onto the mid palate; overall though the wine is fine, linear and tightly focused with grainy tannins adding texture. The finish is long, dry and limey with just a hint of apricot and slate.
