Waipara Riesling Challenge Paul Bourgeois 2010

Light green-gold. Lime, lemon, some florals and a little kerosene. Just off-dry; good citrus fruit and some florals but a hint of vegetal stalkiness too, although this reduces with time in the glass. Finish is average but in balance. Nice wine but the vegetal notes are out of character.

Waipara, New Zealand

16/20 [tasted 25-05-2012] www.rieslingchallenge.co.nz Paul Bourgeois

Bought from www.blackmarket.co.nz. The case of 12 (one bottle from each of the Challenge winemakers) was great value for $120. Stored in a cool spare room.
