Paulownia Estate Wairarapa Riesling 2016 $20

It’s a smash-up of citrus and beeswax and ripe limes drizzled with honey and mandarin juice and how good does that sound!  Probably as good as it tastes.  Four years on and it’s really beginning to come into its own with a full, creamy character in the mid-palate and a solid botrytis-licked finish giving it complexity on the finish.  The astringency is refreshing and adds texture.  Nice.
