Pure and punchy

Burn Cottage Riesling Grüner Veltliner 2015, Central Otago, NZD $55

An intriguing near equal blend with an average of around 60 hours of skin contact prior to fermentation and maturation in stainless steel and old oak barriques for 11 months. Flavoursome wine with citrus, lime, wildflowers, mineral, green tea and a tiny hint of clover honey. Quite a textural white wine with peppery tannins and taut acidity. (Cork)
