OVERVIEW

2013 winner of the Decanter World Wine Awards International Trophy for the Best in Show Riesling Under £15.

They said: "Expressive, sherbet-bomb character showing Riesling typicity with vivid pear, lime and kerosene aromas. Pithy citrus fruit palate with lime blossom, freshness, yellow stone fruit and a steely, bone-dry finish. Plenty of ageability."

We say: "It's delicious!"

Bursting with flavours of fresh lime, waxy lemon and honeysuckle, this New Zealand Riesling from Marlborough is balanced and refreshing. Its has aromas of nectarine, beeswax and some chalky notes, while flavours are vibrant with mineral tones, a pleasing density and cleansing finish. It's produced in very small quantities each year.

Sensational matched with honey glazed seared scallops with a hint of chilli, or sashimi with soya and pickled ginger.
