Pegasus Bay Aria Late Picked Riesling (2020)

Estate-grown at Waipara, the 2020 vintage (4.5*) is packaged in a full-sized (750-ml) bottle. Bright, light lemon/green, it is still a baby, with very good intensity of fresh, citrusy, vaguely honeyed flavours, high acidity balanced by abundant sweetness, and obvious potential. Best drinking 2024+.
