Bald Hills Last Light Central Otago Riesling 2021 $30

At a positively demure 11.5% alcohol this riesling romps in with magic mandarin and apple aromatics, a palate draped in honeysuckle and a finish that’s laced with fresh lime layers. A lick of grapefruit and a teensy tweak of creamy nougat features in the background, making this a mineral-edged style with a hint of biscuity complexity. It has an initial impression of sweetness, yet shows a long, highly textural character on the finish .
