Mount Brown Estates North Canterbury Riesling (2020)

Priced sharply, the 2020 vintage (4*) is a distinctly medium style (30 grams/litre of residual sugar). Lemon-scented, it has good intensity of fresh, citrusy, peachy, vaguely honeyed flavours, finely balanced acidity and lots of drink-young appeal. Drink now or cellar.
