“Refreshing lime and mint characters offer instant pleasure. In the mouth this wine is juicy and almost moscato-like in its sweetness profile, lush in texture with crunchy acidity. Another delicious example of how well suited Central Otago is to growing riesling, this time from premium producer Mt Difficulty. Medium”

Winery Tasting Notes
Fragrant floral notes compete with citrus and apple in the aroma of this Riesling.
Floral citrus characters introduce this wine to the palate. A moderate amount of residual sugar (40gL-1) has been retained to balance the slightly higher acidity from a warmer season. This residual sugar has also fleshed out the mid-palate of the wine. This wine will richly reward those who can cellar it.
Mt Difficulty Target Riesling will improve for 6 - 9 years given optimal cellaring conditions.
