Gibbston Valley La Maitre Central Otago Riesling (2019)

The vigorous 2019 vintage (5*) was hand-harvested from mature vines (up to 37 years old) in the home vineyard at Gibbston. Bright, light lemon/green, it is intense and youthful, with gently sweet (16 grams/litre of residual sugar), citrusy, appley flavours, crisp and lasting. Likely to be long-lived, it should be at its best 2023+. Certified organic.
