Omeo Blackman's Gully Single Vineyard Central Otago Riesling (2020)

The attractive 2020 vintage (4*), grown at Alexandra, is a bright, light yellow/green wine, medium-bodied, with grapefruit and peach flavours, fresh and strong. Appetisingly crisp, with a slightly sweet (10 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish, it's already enjoyable, but likely to be at its best 2023+.
