Little Beauty Dry Riesling 2019
The palate has vibrant, mineral tones with a pleasing density and cleansing finish. Lemons, limes, clementine, beeswax are characters of note.
With some Rieslings, bottle age can be an asset…it brings palate weight and added depth and complexity.
Paired with honey glazed seared scallops with a hint of chilli – sensational. Or, sashimi with soya and pickled ginger – divine.
Recipe suggestion: Twice-cooked Sticky Pork Belly with Steamed Rice
