Spy Valley Envoy Johnson Riesling (2016)

Currently on sale, the 2016 vintage (4.5*) was hand-picked from mature vines in the Waihopai Valley, and fermented and lees-aged for six months 'in an old oak vessel'. Still youthful, it is a slowly evolving, tightly structured wine, with strong, lemony, appley flavours, poised and vigorous, and a sweet, crisp, steely finish. Best drinking 2024+.
