Three paddles riesling 2008

From the Cellar: Nga Waka Three Paddles Martinborough Riesling 2008 – $$

This is my first Riesling of summer.

It’s a golden colour. 12%. Smells lovely and mature, deep, but no hint of any kero note poking through.

Very tasty wine, packed with flavour. Off-dry tending to medium now.  Ripe and luscious fruit; honey, citrus and toffee apple. It’s still crisp and fresh-tasting after 5 years in the bottle. Good timing to open it now. The wine may have tipped over by next year. 4
