Aurum Central Otago Dry Riesling (2019)

Well worth cellaring, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) was hand-harvested from 21 year-old vines in the Cromwell Basin. Light lemon/green, it is scented and vigorous, with very good intensity of youthful, citrusy flavours, firm acid spine and a basically dry (6 grams/litre of residual sugar), long finish. Best drinking 2023+.
