Zephyr Riesling 2012 Marlborough 12.5%
N: Generous and lush with a rich mix of citrus and apple fruit suggestions; apricot and mandarin skin add layers of generosity. An off-dry aroma of sweet lemonade popsicle adds both a familiar smell and a little more complexity.

P: A striking texture with a particular focus on how the acidity captures the palate, but is forgiven by the generosity of fruit and lick of residual sugar . Sweet air, white flowers and wet stone flavours add to the length and appeal of this wine. A lovely example and great aperitif.
