Ceres Black Rabbit Riesling, Central Otago

Ceres Black Rabbit Riesling, Central Otago

This Riesling is just off-dry with 10g/l residual sugar to balance a mineral and acid backbone. The juice was settled for an extended period to enable it to deliver a balanced and fleshy mid palate, then cool-fermented in stainless steel to deliver a clean and mineral finish with retention of varietal expression. The bouquet is elegant and very tightly bound with aromas of mineral-infused white florals, a little flintiness and delicate lime and lemon fruit, all expressed with purity. Off-dry, a fruit amalgam of limes and lemons, and exotic florals show with intensity and concentrated body.
