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 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"
TiZwine.com says "Brilliant, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale on edge. This has a fresh nose of limes and lemons with apples and nuances of fresh herbs and pepper. Medium in sweetness, this is tightly bound and youthful, showing green apple and lime fruit flavours backed by thirst-quenching acidity. A slight textural line adds to the palate presence and along with the crisp acid, provides a firm line and dry finish. This German kabinett-styled Riesling is very fresh... showing apple-like flavours and some firmness, but will develop over the next 4-5 years." - 3.5 Stars.
One you can drink now, but you will be rewarded by cellaring.
