Butterworth Te Muna Martinborough Dry Riesling (2020)

Still very youthful, the 2020 vintage (4*) was hand-picked and estate-grown (in the vineyard known formerly as Julicher.) Fragrant and tightly structured, it has strong, lemony, peachy, slightly spicy flavours, showing very good delicacy and freshness, firm acid spine, and a racy, dryish (7 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Best drinking 2023+.
