    Pegasus Bay Bel Canto Dry Riesling 2023

    "A dense and spicy riesling with sliced apples, lemons, grapefruit and flint. Full- to medium- bodied, layered and minerally. One of the best rieslings in New Zealand." 94 Points, James Suckling Wine Reviews www.jamessuckling.com

    "Bright, even, pale yellow with a slight green hue. This has a rich bouquet with softly penetrating aromas of citrus, pickled ginger, blossom, and tropical fruit notes. Full-bodied, dry to taste, aromas of lemon, lime and mandarin intertwined with pineapple, stonefruit, magnolia, pickled ginger and honeycomb. The generous fruit shows depth and layers, unfolding citrus peels and honeycomb. Tangy acidity and fine phenolics provide structure, lending a long, rich and moreish palate. This dry and complex style of Riesling is ready to mingle with multi-layers and textures…."  8.5+/20, Candice Chow, Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
