Judges Comments:

Germany is synonymous with Riesling, after all they have been making and selling it since the 1100’s. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the three Giesen brothers who emigrated to NZ in the 1980’s from their native Germany would be producing beautifully refined Riesling that wins Gold year after year. With concentrated flavours of green apple and lime zest that gently whispers sweetness, ‘wine speak’ would describe it as being refined and stylish, the rest of us would call it a mesmerising great wine.

Pairing Recommendation:

Delicate and often floral in character, a great match to Asian inspired foods, antipasti and pre-dinner nibbles, as well as chips and dips. Perfect with a light lunch, picnic, cheeseboard, Mexican dishes and coconut-based curry sauces.
