Buy of the Week NZ

Lake Chalice The Falcon Riesling 2015, Marlborough, NZD $18.99

Light, gently tangy riesling with lime, white flowers and salty mineral flavours. The wine is very pure and builds attractive sweet-and-sour tension. A lingering finish with a salt air tang to it. Good value at this price. (Screwcap)
