Scout Glasnevin Waipara Riesling 2019 $30

Don’t let the ultra-soft, delicate, lemony aromatics fool you because as soon as this hits your palate it’s like biting into a spanky-fresh Braeburn apple with that twang of bitterness from the skin snaking across the juiciness in the mid-palate and a hit of honeysuckle reignites the varietal character.  Dry and multi-dimensional, the texture has a delicious grip and adds real length and complexity to the palate.  Nicely done by young winemaking team Sarah Adamson and Greg Lane.
