93 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
Produced by one of our favourite boutique producers, this is excellent medium-dry Waipara Riesling. In contrast to previous releases which had a few years of bottle age, the 2021 release is fresh and fragrant with bright floral / citrus notes. Fresh acidity cleans up the finish and makes another glass mandatory. This wine is drinking well now but can easily be cellared for 5 - 10 years. It comes very highly recommended.
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Aromas of sweet lemon and a touch of lime, fresh green apple and white blossom perfume. In addition to the core of fruit scents lies a fresh wet chalk mineral quality. A satin texture touches the palate followed by an intense flavour of citrus and mineral, apple and honeysuckle. An abundance of acidity adds texture and freshness, moderate alcohol and core fruit flavours carrying weight and length. The wine finishes with a floral honeysuckle flavours and just dry."
