Wonderful Waipara Riesling from a winery that is fast becoming a force on the New Zealand wine scene. Dry with loads of juicy fruit characters supported by zingy acidity. Delectable.
Bob Campbell, MW writes "The 2016 Black Estate Damsteep Riesling from Waipara has just 5 g/l of residual sugar, which in technical terms puts it on the upper edge of dry. In fact, the wine is mouth-wateringly dry thanks to assertive, but not at all hard, acidity. Like the Two Rivers wine, it has good weight and richness with a slightly riper flavour profile. Roast chicken was a little too rich for the wine, a seafood dish might have been better, Bluff oysters with a squeeze of lime would have been perfect."
