Misha’s Vineyard Limelight Riesling 2012 Central Otago 11.5%
There are many attributes to fine Riesling, but the ones I take notice of most are the way in which the wine captures my attention with its bouquet, and the way in which it follows through on the palate:
N: Mandarin and lime-flower (this will grab you too), then apple and chilled peach tea. Packed with green apple and lemon, even some zest.
P:Generous yet reserved; elegant yet juicy. Residual sugar (28gpl) combines seamlessly with the pristine acidity (high & around 2.88 pH) and a lime-flower finish. This is a fantastic wine.
