Buy of the Week NZ

Hunter’s Riesling 2016, Marlborough, NZD $21.99

Off-dry riesling with a tease of initial sweetness that’s balanced by tangy acidity to give a drying finish and some pleasing tension. Lime, citrus, floral and a suggestion of fresh herbs. A pretty wine offering good value at this price.
