An Amisfield aperitif

Amisfield Lowburn Terrace Riesling 2017, Central Otago, NZD $30

Aromatic wine with a floral, lime blossom aroma and lime zest, wet stone, mineral and wildflower characters on the palate. Lovely sweet-and-sour tension gives the wine real energy. Medium-sweet; a great aperitif style. (Screwcap)
