Ostler Lakeside Riesling 2012
A cracking first vintage from this special vineyard above Lake Waitaki. Palest straw green in color; aromatically showing lemons, limes, white flowers and lovely underlying minerality, reminiscent of rain falling on hot river stones. The palate is full-bodied; classified ‘medium-dry’. Fresh flavor of citrus with well-balanced acid structure. Drinking well now.
Off-dry, this is a rich and concentrated wine that unfolds interwoven flavours of spicy yellow stone fruits, honey, flint and earth. The second vintage from this special vineyard above Lake Waitaki. Brilliant straw-yellow colour with light hues of gold, pale on the rim.
