Purity of aroma typifies Giesen Estate Marlborough Riesling 2012 with notes of lemon and lime zest, jasmine, ginger and ‘petrichor’, which means the aroma of rain on dry earth. The palate has a succulent sweetness and intensity, reminiscent of lemon curd combined with the vibrant flavours of mandarin. Lovely and dry, the mineral acidity provides a structural backbone and length to the palate.
What I have to say about Geisen Estate Marlborough Riesling 2012:
Fruity, sweet but not annoyingly so. THIS is a fun wine and something that should be shared with a group of friends as we watch the sunset from my porch on a summer evening in Toronto. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
