The Omaka Springs 2007 Riesling received a 4.5 star / 90 point rating from Sam Kim of Wine Orbit. This aromatic white has been carefully cellared to bring out the finest qualities one would expect from a superb, dry, aged Riesling. This aromatic, floral wine displays lanolin and soft rose petal notes on the nose. A steal at just $8.50 per bottle.
"A beautifully maturing wine showing lifted aromas of ripe citrus, stonefruit and a touch of toasty notes. The palate is succulent and smooth with lovely fruit intensity and elegant sweetness, well balanced by the crisp acidity. Very satisfying. At its best: now to 2013." 4.5 Stars / 90 points- Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.
This wine has a beautiful golden, amber colour and shows lively lemon flavours, excellent acidity and minerality, and a soft honeyed character that adds to its complexity.
Riesling has long been regarded as the great secret of NZ wine. It is what this country's winemakers drink and it's delicious and great value. Furthermore, no less an authority than Stephen Spurrier - the english wine merchant and now journalist memorably portrayed by Alan Rickman in the film 'Bottle Shock' - has stated that "New Zealand producers are discovering the country's enormous potential for aromatic varieties such as Riesling, Gewürztraminer & Pinot Gris"
