RICH, JUICY, SUPER CLASSIC WAIPARA RIESLING
92 POINTS | James Suckling
We've been backing Main Divide's delicious riesling for years, and with the 2022 vintage claiming an impressive 92 points from revered critic James Suckling, you can see why. With lush, juicy fruit characters of lime, citrus blossom and nectarine, this is Waipara Riesling at its best. The 2022 vintage is full-bodied with a gentle kiss of sweetness, yet plenty of lively acidity and minerality to keep things fresh. And at well under the $20 barrier, this latest Main Divide release offers super value for money.
A must-buy for any riesling lover.
James Suckling writes "White flowers with dried melon and pear. Some white pepper. Fullbodied, sweet and flavourful. Plenty of riesling character.”"
The winery writes "Upon release its colour is bright lemon. The nose is a zestful medley of quince, lime, citrus blossom, and nectarine, wrapped in a steely mantle of flinty minerality. On the palate there is a lively tension, a rich and juicy mouthfeel balanced with gentle sweetness and a shot of refreshing acidity. Playful, yet full of finesse, the escapade closes with a lasting and piquant finish."
