Buy of the Week NZ

Amisfield Lowburn Terrace Riesling 2016, Central Otago, NZD $25

Delicious riesling in a medium-sweet style. No botrytis in this wine, just pure, edgy varietal flavours of lime, mineral and white flowers plus a suggestion of tree fruit and white peach. Exquisite acid/sugar tension and an ethereal texture. (Screwcap)
