Hunter's Marlborough Riesling (2021)

This wine is consistently good and bargain-priced. Well worth cellaring, the 2021 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown at Rapaura, in the Wairau Valley. Invitingly scented, it is medium-bodied, with very good intensity of vibrant, citrusy, peachy, slightly spicy flavours, and a crisp, dryish, persistent finish.
