Riverby Estate Single Vineyard Marlborough Grüner Veltliner (2021)

Estate-grown and hand-harvested at Rapaura, in the Wairau Valley, the youthful 2021 vintage (4*) is a characterful wine. Bright, light lemon/green, it is full-bodied, with good vigour and concentration of citrusy, peachy, spicy flavours, and a dry (4 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Best drinking mid-2022+.
