Ostler Lakeside Riesling 2015 750ml

The 2015 Lakeside Riesling has the structure and flavour to age well. Already benefitting from 5 years in the bottle, it's drinking beautifully now and has years of cellaring potential if you like aged rieslings.

This wine is more in the German Spätlese, late harvest style. Lowish alcohol keeps the burn at bay and the fruit flavours dance across the palate buoyed by crisp acidity. Aromatically delicate white flower and lemon/lime peel characters are underpinned by mineral salt notes serving to underpin the bouquet.

TASTING NOTE

Grown in the Waitaki Valley, North Otago, the 2015 vintage (★★★★★) is a lovely wine. Light-bodied, it is vivacious, with penetrating, citrusy, peachy flavours, gently sweet (29 grams/litre of residual sugar) and mouth-wateringly crisp, and a very long finish.

Alc: 11%
