Top drop over $20 (only just)… The Boneline Riesling

This is Riesling as it should be…

2014 The Boneline Hellblock Riesling $21.50

This great white comes from the country’s top Riesling region – North Canterbury – and is made by a winemaker from even further south; Jeff Sinnott, who understands Riesling better than the back of his hand. It’s a succulent, decadent, delicious wine with refreshing high acidity balanced beautifully by the intense ripe orange and peach flavours – a wine that shines a new light on Riesling, thanks to North Canterbury’s climate and top winemaking.

It’s also open this Saturday in Wellington at Regional Wines & Spirits from 1pm to 5pm… at the store’s free weekly tasting. Come along.
