Richmond Plains Riesling 2014
Richmond Plains – New Zealand
Banjo says: A perfectly poised medium-bodied style, the delicately perfumed bouquet shows white nectarines and delicious lime zest, overlaid with honeysuckle and jasmine. A lovely balance between sweetness and freshness, with some gentle honey becoming apparent on the palate, but refreshing and clean due to lifted acidity. A beautifully balanced wine – fresh, vital and tangy.
The grape type
Fruit flavours: Pineapple, Apricot, Lime, Pear, Green Apple
Other flavours: Honey, Ginger, Caramel, Red Frogs
The pairingsThis Riesling is bone dry (as in not sweet), but still retains those exotic spicy Riesling flavours so it’s a great match for dishes with lots of strong herbs flavours, such as ginger and coriander.
