2008 Momo Marlborough Riesling

Clear, pale gold. Nose is clean, medium intensity apricot-honey and slate-mineral. Just off-dry, high acidity, medium body. Green fruit dominates on the palette, with a bit of stone fruit and slate. Medium-plus length. 11% alcohol. Overall good: enjoyable, though the balance is a bit off, dominated by a lingering earthy minerality; perhaps will develop in the bottle. $22.90 at Marquis. See Momo Wines (currently converting to organic).
