Butterworth Te Muna Martinborough Dry Riesling (2021)

Still very youthful, the 2021 vintage (4.5*) was hand-harvested and estate-grown (in the vineyard known formerly as Julicher.) Bright, light lemon/green, it is a light-bodied, finely balanced wine, with fresh, lemony, appley flavours, showing excellent delicacy and depth, and a crisp, off-dry (6 grams/litre of residual sugar), lingering finish. Best drinking 2024+.
