Waipara Riesling Challenge Patrick Materman 2010

Medium gold. Fresh lemon/citrus, some honey sweet fragrance and a little petrol. On the palate there is an unclean musty character, petrol is there but little fruit. Very short. This wine appears overly advanced and is out of balance.

Waipara, New Zealand

14/20 [tasted 18-02-2012] www.rieslingchallenge.co.nz Patrick Materman

Bought from www.blackmarket.co.nz. The case of 12 (one bottle from each of the Challenge winemakers) was great value for $120. Stored in a cool spare room.
