Dry River Craighall Vineyard Selection Martinborough Riesling (2020)

This consistently classy wine is late-harvested to 'produce a Riesling with low alcohol, high residual sugar and high acidity, in order to create a tension between these components'. The 2020 vintage (5*) is already drinking well. Light gold, it has rich, peachy, slightly spicy flavours, gently honeyed notes, abundant sweetness (70 grams/litre of residual sugar), and excellent depth and harmony.
