Kusuda Riesling 2011, Martinborough NZ

Kusuda Riesling 2011Another cult producer in Martinborough who commands similar prices as Dry River. This has a bright straw-yellow core; delicate floral notes, ripe limes and subtle honeyed tones on the nose. The presence of sulphides were evident but not overwhelming. Dry, limes, lime pith on the palate. Medium-plus acid; medium to medium-plus finish with a spicy bite towards the end. A little Mosel-like and I actually liked it. Can’t say it’s a complex wine right now but only time can tell if it has that capacity to grow and mature. Only 3600+ bottles produced.
