Mondillo Riesling 2018

$28.00
Vendor: Mondillo

Available

Single vineyard 2018 Riesling has a luscious bouquet of white peaches, citrus zest and honeysuckle. A delicate wine with good palate weight and a lingering, creamy, dry finish.

The 2018 Central Otago growing season started with a warm spring, followed by the hottest January on record. The calm, hot temperatures continued throughout the summer producing the earliest harvest we had ever experienced – grapes were hand harvested in March. Limited Edition 2018 vintage, 142 dozen, so if you are a dry Riesling fan, be quick.

Drink/Cellar: Now until 2024

Delicious with chicken, fish, vegetarian dishes, rich cheese soufflés and Asian fare.

Asian fare.

Raymond Chan, 18.5+/20 - Five Stars

"Bright, pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is elegant and delicate with finely concentrated and intense aromas of limes, lemonade and tangerines harmoniously entwined with exotic florals, a little honeysuckle and musk, and a touch of saline minerality. This has aromatic beauty. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate is gently rich with exotic flavours of limes, lemonade and citrus fruit with exotic florals, honeysuckle and a little sherbet and musk, with thirst-quenching mineral nuances. The palate is poised with the soft richness balanced by crisp acidity, and the wine is carried with good energy and tension to a long, lingering finish of florals and honey. This is a gently rich dry Riesling with exotic citrus, floral, honied and musky flavours on a poised palate with crisp acidity.  www.raymondchanwinereviews.co.nz"

The impressive 2018 vintage has lovely freshness, delicacy, drive and harmony. Light lemon/green, it is an attractively scented, medium-bodied wine, with concentrated, ripe, citrusy flavours, hints of peaches and spices, slightly minerally notes and a long, basically dry (5.7 grams/litre residual sugar) finish. Best drinking 2020+. www.michaelcooper.co.nz
