Why we're drinking this
This Riesling is a consistent bottle for a great value. It has an incredibly precise profile — apple and stone fruit flavours, bright acidity, a wet-stone steeliness, clean finish — and yet it’s a wine with infinite variability. You’ll be rewarded with a wonderful green apple, melon and slightly savoury and herbal notes (lime pitch, sage, thyme). The texture is light, but it’s present on your palate. A solid 89 points, maybe 90, so grab this one while you can!

Tasting note
Very pretty; fresh fruit nose leads your palate to flavours of fresh apple, pear, melon and a hint of tropical fruit. Supple and fleshy for such a low-alcohol wine, with a nice lemon acidic structure to balance things out. It’s refreshing and inviting, finishing nice and dry with a kiss of vanilla.
