From the Cellar: Villa Maria Private Bin Dry Riesling 2010 – $
This wine was lauded back in the day. I bought a brace or three. First bottle opened. I haven’t picked the best night to drink this. Outside blows the first of Wellington’s early winter storms…
Pale green straw. 12.5%. Pears meet melons meet citrus on nose. Emerging Riesling ‘chem-trail’ age characters starting to show. Classy.
Bright fresh fruit acidity on palate. Bracing and zippy. Pleasant weight and finish. Moreish. Went surprisingly well with the fruit and butter of my Hot X Buns. 3+
