Delish dry riesling

Foxes-Island-Dry-Riesling-2011Foxes Island 2011 Dry Riesling, Marlborough NZD $30

Creamy, concentrated Riesling with just a hint of fruit sweetness that is neatly balanced by chalky acidity to give a little tension and a drying finish. Lime, wild flowers and oyster shell mineral characters are evident. Still quite youthful with good cellaring potential. (Screwcap)
