Amisfield Dry Riesling 2013 Central Otago 11%
Mandarin and lime flower, soft sweet apple, orange blossom and a touch of sherbet. On the palate - as the label suggest (dry) with a sting in the acidity highlighting the preciseness of citrus flavors and green apple; light bodied, aperitif style, balanced and well made.
3.5 Stars

Amisfield 'Lowburn Terrace' Riesling 2011 Central Otago 8.6%
Crisp, floral and fruity with mineral suggestions - lots of sweet lemon dusted with powdered sugar, green and red apple and a youthful grapefruit scent. On the palate - off dry with lots of sweetness, but nicely contrasted with highish acidity; this emphasises the lemon and apple flavors, lengthens the finish and shows off the mineral notes. Good job!
