Tupari Riesling 2016 Awatere Valley, Marlborough
Plush, fragrant and varietal with mandarin, lime flower and apple aromas, a light white spice moment adds intrigue and complexity. On the palate – off dry with some residual sweetness, but immediately and contrasting high acidity finishes the wine dry; flavours of apple and citrus lead with a youthful coarse silk texture and lengthy finish. Drink now and through 2035.

Savoury, fruity and developing bouquet with aromas and flavours of baked white fleshed fruits, some citrus and rocky mineral-like suggestions. Just off-dry and warm with some elevated alcohol, pear, citrus, a layer of spice and firm texture. Drink now and through 2020.
