Bald Hills Central Otago Last Light Riesling

I love the way pepper plays in this wine, with kaffir lime-like spice and crunchy granny smith apple notes that infuse it with particularly lively and fresh poise, even at two years of age. A pristine fruit profile hovers long and clean amidst fine, mineral acidity, with subtle sweetness tucked neatly into its folds. Hand picked from one hectare of vines, the story goes that the sun’s last rays linger here, contributing to slow ripening and intense fruit flavours. It seems the tale is as romantic as the result.
