Hunter's Marlborough Riesling (2020)

This wine is consistently good and bargain-priced. Grown at Rapaura, the 2019 vintage (4*) is a scented, medium-bodied wine with strong, fresh lemon/lime flavours, dryish, poised and lingering. Still very youthful, the pale lemon/green 2020 vintage (4*) is scented and dryish (6 grams/litre of residual sugar), with vibrant, citrusy, appley flavours that linger well. Best drinking 2022+.
