Racy riesling

Two Rivers Juliet Riesling 2016, Marlborough, NZD $24

Flavoursome, appealing, medium-dry riesling, with deliciously fruity acidity perfectly balancing moderate sweetness to give the wine an exquisite tension. A concentrated wine that is great to drink now but will age well. Very impressive indeed. (Screwcap)
