Spy Valley Riesling Envoy 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes were hand selected and harvested from our original plantings of Riesling. They were then whole bunch pressed and tank fermented. At the desired balance the wine was chilled, settled and racked. The wine was aged for six months in a large oak cuve prior to bottling, then bottle aged for another 12 months before release.*Bouquet*Lime, honeysuckle and riverstones*Palate*Crisp acid is delicately balanced with sweetness and ripe fruit tannins to give a lingering, mouthwatering finish. Tight and youthful on release, expect good cellaring potential.*This is a wine that will open your eyes to the pleasures of riesling.*

A nice nose that combines apple fruit with some citrus pith tones in a waxy, almost woodsy style. A touch sweet in the mouth but well-countered by excellent balancing acids. The fruit here is very pure with a peach core accented by notes of kiwi skin and lemon curd. The sweetness here has a nice purity, recalling cane syrup, and the acid still offers good cut on the moderately long finish. 88pts
