Domain Road The Water Race Central Otago Dry Riesling 2018 $27

Great dry riesling should have an immediate flinty, limey, green apple impact on the nose and a tidal wave of crunchy, zesty acidity and lemon-lime layers. This super-juicy new release from Graeme and Jill Crosbie is actually named after the ubiquitous water races that prospectors carved into the Bannockburn hillsides during the gold-rush days.  True to its name, it saturates the gums and tongue with every sip.  Bony and beautiful, it’s like a bottled version of the Bannockburn landscape. Sip with a wedge of cumin seed gouda.
