Maude Mt Maude East Block Wanaka Central Otago Riesling (2021)

From vines planted in 1994 on a steep, north-facing slope at Wanaka, the 2021 vintage (5*) is light and vivacious. Bright, light lemon/green, it is a Mosel-like wine, fresh and intense, with lemon, apple and peach flavours, threaded with crisp acidity, gentle sweetness (52 grams/litre of residual sugar), and lovely harmony and length. Best drinking 2023+.
