2013 Charteris The Hunt Vineyard Riesling
I was much impressed by the 2012 version of this wine and the 2013 is just as good! It is green-tinted light gold and has honeysuckle aromas. Crisp lime flavour zips onto the front of the palate and the middle palate brings forth flint and green apple characters underpinned by as-yet-restrained honey and toast characters. Slaty acid holds sway at the finish.
Drink with: Seared scallops with pea puree and caviar.
Ageing: Eight Years
Rating: 4.5 Stars
