Craggy Range Te Muna Road Riesling Martinborough 2014 – $$

Pale gold colour. 11.5% alc.

Steely cut-thru on the nose, crisp and ticklish, with scents of lemon and apple and a bit of clover honey.

Off dry. Austere and linear, with crisp citrus fruit flavours, short and sharp. Young and somewhat one-dimensional, but good for the heat of a summer’s afternoon, something that this season has been in short supply of.

Commended  – 84 points
