Tohu Single Vineyard Riesling 2013 Marlborough 11.5%
Lots of fresh, clean and crisp aromas of apple, pear and white peach. Attractive and inviting with a light floral note.
On the palate - dry which is surprising considering the 11.5% alcohol. High acidity commands palate attention first with a crisp floral and lemony feel; there is a little residual sugar that brings contrast and harmony to the palate. That said this is quite powerful impact to get used to. All the flavors described above  - apple, pear and white peach return. A lovely aperitif style that will likely be a lovely match to oysters or crisp light salads.
4 Stars
