Rich riesling

Pegasus Bay Riesling 2015, Waipara, NZD $30

Rich, concentrated and flavoursome riesling in a medium-dry style with lime, honey, mango and apricot flavours. Less botrytis influence than usual, which means more focus on varietal flavours. Sweetness is balanced by fruity acidity and fine tannins. A powerful wine with character. (Screwcap)
