Sutherland Riesling 2023
Sutherland Riesling is fragrant and inviting on the nose with characteristic aromas of orange blossom and lime, white peach and hints of citrus. The palate has nice texture, and the residual sweetness stands firm against the prominent limey acidity.
Asian-style salads with coriander and lime pair really well as do Thai fish cakes.
