Giesen Riesling Blush (2019)

'Share this wine while getting ready for a night out', suggests Giesen. The 2019 vintage (3.5*) is a blend of Riesling, grown in Marlborough and Waipara, with 'a dash of Marlborough-grown Syrah'. Pale pink, it is light-bodied, with fresh watermelon-like flavours, hints of peaches and spices, balanced acidity, and a gently sweet (20 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish.
