Rapaura Springs Gravel Lane Vineyard Marlborough Botrytised Riesling (2018)

Currently delicious, the memorable 2018 vintage (5*) was grown at Omaka and handled in old French oak barriques. Deep green/gold, with a richly honeyed bouquet, it has lovely vigour and poise, with highly concentrated, lemon and apricot flavours, an oily texture, abundant sweetness (233 grams/litre of residual sugar), and good acid spine. Drink now or cellar.
