Ataahua Waipara Riesling 2016 $26

There’s a really intense, lemon-pith, lime zest, honeysuckle and apple skin character on the nose of this mineral-driven, chalk-and-citrus laden riesling. With a whiff of crushed seashells and a whack of acidity in the mid palate, it’s a bottle of niceness from North Canterbury. Cheek-slappingly dry and citrusy to taste, the texture is the thing I really love, zingy, prickly and precise. It’s a wake-up call in a glass.
