Fairleigh Estate Riesling 2009

I've been a fan of New Zealand Riesling ever since discovering Spy Valley, especially the 2007. I haven't been able to replicate that experience however, even with subsequent vintages of Spy Valley, or any other Kiwi Riesling.

This isn't really any exception. It's nice - citrus notes, good acidity and a bit of residual sugar, but it lacks the petrol notes that I so love. Still, it'll do.

Made by Wither Hills.
