Maude Mt Maude Wanaka Central Otago Dry Riesling (2021)

Hand-harvested from vines planted at Mt Maude Vineyard in 1994, the 2021 vintage (5*) has obvious cellaring potential. Bright, light lemon/green, it is scented, with intense, vigorous, citrusy, appley flavours, slightly peachy notes, and a basically dry (5.3 grams/litre of residual sugar), crisp, finely balanced and lingering finish. Best drinking 2026+.
