Riesling with tension

Ceres Black Rabbit Vineyard Riesling 2016, Central Otago, NZD $24

Very attractive medium-dry riesling with lime zest, white peach and subtle floral flavours. A hint of sweetness is balanced by soft, fruity acidity that gives the wine a pleasing tension. Delicious now but should age well. (Screwcap)
