Pisa Range Estate Pisa Central Otago Riesling (2015)

Full of personality, the estate-grown 2015 vintage (5*) is a top buy. Bright lemon/green, with a beautifully scented bouquet, it is vigorous and tightly structured, but not austere, with intense lemon/lime flavours, gentle, toasty, bottle-aged notes adding complexity, and a lasting, dry (2 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Drinking well now, but with its best years still ahead, it's likely to be very long-lived.
