Stoneleigh Marlborough Riesling 11.9%, 750ml
The fruit for this wine has come through yet again, displaying typical limey, citrus notes and a flinty minerality on the palate. This wine will reward those who have the patience to cellar their wine for another few years.
Aroma and Palate:
- This wine displays lifted cherry blossom, red delicious apple and delicate white nectarine aromas following through to a grapefruity citrus palate with flinty mineral undertones and a limey backbone.
- The racy acidity in this wine provides great length and longevity.
Cellaring and Food Matching:
- A classic Marlborough Riesling, this wine displays immediate drinkability, although its tight structure and low pH, along with careful cellaring, will reward with further complexity and development for a further ten to twelve years.
- Serve lightly chilled with delicate seafood or white meat dishes, waldorf salad, fruit and cheeses, or simply enjoy on its own.
