Rockburn “Tigermoth” Riesling 2012 Central Otago 9%
N: Specific, focused Riesling bouquet of crisp, fine citrus fruits (zesty skin included), sweet green apples and slightly nutty honeysuckle notes.
P: Off-dry crisp, focused acidity gives a great balance to the generous residual sugar and sweeter fruit attributes. Mineral/soil-like flavours emerge, with a hint of steeliness. Balanced, long finish.
My kind of aperitif, well chilled with chilli prawns and hoisin sauce.

The alcohol on the label of this wine is not what it actually is. The label indicates an 11% abv where it is in fact only 9%.
