Buy of the Week NZ

Soho Maren Riesling 2016, Marlborough, NZD $24.99

Attractive medium-dry riesling with lime zest and white flower flavours, with a suggestion of oyster shell mineral character. A hint of sweetness is balanced by tangy acidity giving the wine an appealing tension. This is my kind of riesling. (Screwcap)
