From the cellar: Vidal Marlborough Riesling 2008 – $$
Another opportunity to see a good NZ riesling with a bit of age. This was given big ups by The Listener back in the day…
This wine is brilliant pale yellow in the glass; with zesty limes and white blossom on the nose; fresh juicy fruit, lemon cake, hints of grapefruit and lime, and developed TDN age characters on the palate. Off dry. Long, long finish. Delicious!
A classy aperitif wine to stimulate the appetite. It edges the Vidal Dry Riesling tasted earlier.
