What’s in the glass tonight February 5th – Riesling

Mud House Mound Riesling 2014

Mud House The Mound Vineyard Riesling Waipara 2014  – $$

Pale straw colour. 11.5% alc. Single Vineyard product.

Welcome typical varietal phenolic, volatile and lifted characters. Smells of apple, lime and Meyer lemon. & Fresh. White blossom and brioche aromas at the back.

A off dry style, the wine tastes supple, ripe & bracing. It has that lovely mouthwatering astringency that makes Riesling so delicious. It is clear on the palate, with perfect fruit weight and a bracing linear finish. Another candidate that confirms Waipara as a go-to-place for delicious good value Rieslings.
