Wine of the Week NZ

Chateau Rieussec Grand Cru Sauternes 1997, Bordeaux, NZD $95

Lovely mature Sauternes from a top producer and quite a good vintage. Caramel, Oriental spices and fruitcake are among the more recognisable flavours. Just beginning to dry out but the wine is deliciously accessible and in tip-top shape for drinking now. Very good value at this price. (Cork)
