Main Divide is consistently one of my favourite value producers from New Zealand and this delicious Riesling delivers the goods. Based out of the area of Waipara on New Zealand’s South Island, Main Divide focuses on crafting wines that retain the purity and freshness that this cooler climate delivers.
Made in an off-dry style, the 2008 Riesling’s sweetness is balanced perfectly by its zesty acidity. On the palate fresh lemon/lime notes dance gracefully with lush peach and apricot character. A touch of botrytis in this vintage adds a delightful honeyed note on the finish. This wine will put a smile on your face and is so good it could just as easily be consumed out of the bottle with the aid of a multi-coloured bendy straw.
At a retail price of around $23.00 this is a great buy for a lazy Sunday evening or your next turkey dinner.
