Tohu Whenua Single Vineyard Whenua Awa Riesling 2018

Taste & Other Notes

Fresh, mouthfilling wine, beautiful texture, lemon sherbet mouthfeel, delicate green apples, ripe limes and crisp lemon finish with lovely powdery mineral texture in the long finish.

This is a typical young Riesling, packed with delicious lemon and other citrus fruit characters, even though the wine is only 12% alc there is no residual sweetness, this is a dry refreshing wine and needs to be served with seafood or fresh goats cheese. The acidity gives his wine the potential to age for many years while there is enough fruit and palate weight to develop rich characters with some age,
