SILVER MEDAL: NZ International Wine Show
Pours a bright, pale straw with green flecks around the rim. A youthful, complex nose showing hints of freshly squeezed lime juice, orange blossom, star jasmine, honeysuckle and orange peel over a core of ripe, crunchy apple. Lovely purity of fruit on the dry palate, with just a hint of apple sweetness adding flesh and volume to the bony structure. Concentrated, juicy and vibrant, yet retaining a delicacy and lightness of touch thanks to the mouth-watering acidity and floral lift, this is a classic example of Riesling from a classic Martinborough vintage.
