Wine of the Week NZ

Mt Difficulty Single Vineyard Long Gully Noble Riesling 2014, Central Otago (375ml), NZD $35

Luscious, honeyed botrytis-driven riesling with ripe apricot, peach and lime blossom flavours. This is a full-blown “sticky” shot through with fruity acidity that prevents any suggestion of cloying. A great dessert wine. (Screwcap)
