Waipara Riesling Challenge Simon Waghorn 2010

Pale green/yellow. Lime and citrus, lovely ripe fruit and a light touch of kerosene there too. Lovely medium-sweet palate with delicate lime/citrus and white florals, acid in balance. Long finish and ripe fruits linger. Very good wine.

Waipara, New Zealand

18.5/20 [tasted 04-08-2012] www.rieslingchallenge.co.nz Simon Waghorn

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.
