Greystone Organic Pétillant Naturel (2021)

Closed with a crown seal, the 2021 vintage (4*) from this Waipara, North Canterbury producer was made from hand-harvested Riesling and 'bottled prior to fully completing its first fermentation, allowing carbon dioxide to be produced by the natural sugars found in the grapes'. Certified organic, it was made with 'no added sulphur', and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Light lemon/green, it's a characterful, slightly austere wine, with strong, vigorous, lemony, appley flavours, firm acid spine and an unusually dry (3.4 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish.
