Valli Waitaki Vineyard North Otago Riesling (2020)

The 2020 vintage (4*) is still very youthful. Bright, light lemon/green, it has good intensity of fresh, citrusy and peachy flavours, threaded with mouth-watering acidity, and gentle sweetness (22.5 grams/litre of residual sugar). Slightly austere at this stage, it needs time; open 2023+.
