New Zealand — Nelson • $18.95 • 90/100

New Zealand is making some wonderful Rieslings, but unfortunately we don’t get to see many of them here in Ontario. The wine is bright, pale straw in colour, with aromas of lime, green apple, honeyed ripe peach and a hint of orange blossom. The wine is off-dry, with vivid acidity, that contrasts with a pleasant richness that enhances the melon, peach and apricot character on the palate. It is nicely textured, with a lingering, crisp and mineral finish — delicate, elegant and a fine value. • Tasted 2017-05-27 • LCBO id#408666 • Find it at your nearest LCBOCHURCHILL CELLARS LTD.
