Mission Estate Hawke's Bay Riesling, 2015
This Mission Estate single-vineyard Riesling is bright and clean reflecting the gentle handling of the grapes. The nose has an intense lime and floral aroma. The palate is very fresh and long with a soft fruit finish.
Overall the flavours are intense, reminiscent of lime and other citrus characters, with the sweetness balancing the acidity.Learn More
