Pegasus Bay Riesling

Peg Bay is one of New Zealand’s greatest rieslings, and less botrytis makes 2009 a particularly alluring and poised expression. Gorgeous complexity of apricot, peach, baked apple, clove, even a hint of kerosene and lingering exotic spice, over a crunchy backbone of lime and lemon zest. It’s a full and rich style of medium sweetness and perfectly tuned balance. $34 at Wine House and NZ Wine Online.
