Food Pairings for Ostler Blue House Riesling Waitaki River Otago Stelvin Bottle
Berry Bros & Rudd review: The fledgling Waitaki River district looks set to be a prime location for<br/>aromatic white wines such as this beautifully precise, chiselled Riesling with<br/>its amazingly pure fresh lime blossom aromatics and beautifully delineated<br/>paalte. A great wine to drink on its own in summer or with a carpaccio of<br/>scallops. <br/>(Jasper Morris MW, BBR Buyer) <br/> <br/>The colour is a refreshingly brilliant straw green. The nose is very pure,<br/>showing scents of wild flowers, lime sherbert and a salty freshness, analagous<br/>with a sea-breeze. Nervosite is there, brimming with tension as the fruit and<br/>acid do their dance like two young lovers entwined in an embrace. The wine<br/>possesses great poise in the mouth with the characteristic citrus flavours<br/>filling the palate at the outset then giving way to a more elusive, and yet<br/>harder-cored, minerality that builds in power as the wine warms up.
