It’s the grape variety that wine trade peeps and wine geeks love, but which is (apparently) impossible to sell. So it’s just my sort of thing. I’m going to focus on it here on my blog, beginning with this wine, which I was served blind the other day.
Neudorf Brightwater Riesling 2007 Nelson, New Zealand
My notes, written blind: Precise, fresh and limey – Riesling? Ripe but dry, with citrus fruit, with some herby notes. Some sweetness of fruit. Complex with great balance. Australia? New Zealand? Really good stuff. 92/100
