Buy of the Week NZ

Giesen Riesling 2015, New Zealand, NZD $16.99

Soft, juicy and moderately sweet riesling with lovely sweet-and-sour action, a smooth texture and pleasant floral and citrus flavours. I particularly like the wine’s acidity, which is perfectly in balance with the level of sweetness without being too obvious. Very good value at this price. (Screwcap)
