Rippon ‘Jeunesse’ Young Vines Riesling 2011 Lake Wanaka Central Otago 12.3%
N: A pristine, crisp bouquet filled with honey suckle-laden lemon and apple, green mandarin and white flowers, a quartz-like mineral note adds a gentle layer of complexity.

P: Reflects the nose with the honey-suckle leading the flavours of apples (red and yellow) and sweet lemon; a nudge of residual sugar is balanced by the medium+ to high acidity, mineral and floral flavours follow. A lovely, balanced wine with a long flowing finish.
4.5 stars
