Seifried Estate Old Coach Road Nelson Riesling

Off-dry riesling at this price from anywhere is a hard find, and this is no simple sweetie. Like all truly great sweet wines, acidity is the key, and Nelson delivered in spades in 2012. This bargain style faithfully captures the primary fruit finesse of the vintage in lemon blossom, lime zest and granny smith apple characters. Well-gauged, classic Nelson acidity and fine minerality are perfectly juxtaposed with softly appealing sweetness, making for the ultimate partner with Asian fusion. $15 at Cracka.
