Eco.love Wines South Island Riesling 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

2009 South Island Riesling Made in the first carboNZero winery in the world, this wine flavors span citrus, bees wax, white peach, spices and florals. This is made in balance of an off dry style. Special parcels of fruit were selected from the Nelson and Marlborough region of New Zealand - famous for its success with aromatic grape varietals. A marriage made in heaven thus resulting in our South Island Riesling. Winemakers Notes: Bouquet: This bouquet jumps out from the glass with up from lemon zest, bees wax, a medley of blossom and spice, with just a hint of Kerosene. This south Island blend of fruit has resulted in a diverse blend of characters. This wine is fantastic to drink now and if you have the patience, cellaring will add further complexity. Palate: This wine has great palate weight, balanced with length of flavor. A juicy style of wine with citrus freshness working well with the more tropical characters and natural sweetness. This wine was stop fermented preventing all of the grape sugar from turning to alcohol. This small quantity of residual sugar gives palate weight and balances the Rieslings natural acidity.

Nice bright riesling. Not over the top but not overly complex. Nose is a bit muted but might because I have it chilled. Bright acidity, nice white fruit in it and some slight sweetness. Very nice job.

Outstanding pairing for sushi. The flavor combo with soy sauce is unique. Also there is a ginger component which caught me off guard. The New Zealand terroir also gives it a nice zing.

Tasted in late 2012, this nearly dry Riesling is showing its age. Obvious oxidation is evident but some fruit hangs on. What fruit is left is somewhat Germanic (mineral notes, floral and good acid). My guess is that upon release, this was much nicer due to more fruit being able to carry the dryness. As it is now, my rating is 83.

It really has the "eco" note. Very fresh...I can taste the seasalt and orange peel in the background.
