Pegasus Bay Riesling Waipara Bel Canto 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very fruity on the nose with an exotic, guava edge over a bed of dusty, earthy mineral tones accented by a light wildflower note. Lean and focused in the mouth, with rich green apple fruits that show a light appleseed bitterness and super-fine acids that cut through the sweetness like a laser. The finish is long, with distinct mineral notes accenting the slightly bitter notes of tangerine pith and Seville orange. This is so packed with phenols that it comes off as distinctly bitter. Perhaps time will tame that, but for now a particular wine. 90pts

Fresh, lime, steely and racy on the nose. Very complete and beautifully balanced with real pizzazz to it. Already a fine aperitif. Dry. 17/20 points. Jancis Robinson. A Riesling wine from Canterbury in New Zealand. 2008 Pegasus Bay Winery Riesling Bel Canto 750ml
