Main Divide North Canterbury Riesling (2018)

Drinking well now, the lush 2018 vintage (4.5*) of this good-value Waipara wine is a distinctly medium style (25 grams/litre of residual sugar). Bright, light yellow/green, with a fragrant, slightly honeyed bouquet, it has strong personality, with concentrated, peachy, gently honeyed flavours. (From Pegasus Bay.)
