Ellero 'Pisa Terrace' Riesling 2012 Central Otago 12.4%
N: Everything about the nose on this wine speaks of mineral, earth and a sense of place first; the fruit signature suggests apple skin, green and red apple, lemon pith, kaffiar leaf and a gentle wild herb note.
P: Acidity leads the palate only because it is so precise and crisp - it carries the flavors of the fruits and minerals suggested above; perhaps a hint of RS, but a wine that finishes dry; a lovely long finish - not intense, but evocatively alluring.
5 Stars (90 Points)
