Grant Burge Thorn Riesling, Eden Valley 2014 $24.75
The fresh, attractive bouquet reminds of dried flowers, while the taste is delicate and dry, soft and refined, with lovely texture and purity of flavour. The completeness and balance of the palate are exemplary. It has richness and density without sacrificing delicacy. (Screw cap; 12.5 per cent alcohol.) Score 94 ★★★★½ – view on huonhooke.com
