Misha's Vineyard Limelight Riesling (2018)

This single-vineyard wine is estate-grown and hand-harvested at Bendigo, in Central Otago. The vivacious 2018 vintage (5*) is a medium style (33 grams/litre of residual sugar), with complexity gained by fermenting 24 per cent of the blend with indigenous yeasts in old French oak barrels. Bright, light lemon/green, it is tightly structured, with youthful, citrusy, limey flavours, showing excellent delicacy, vigour and poise, gentle sweetness and a long finish. Best drinking 2023+.
