The Paddler - Marlborough Riesling 2012New Zealand White Wine
The Paddler is consultant winemaker Matt Thomson's own label. The name refers to Matt himself, as he still competes for New Zealand at the kayak world championships - when they don't interfere with his vintage work.
This wine is a low alcohol, fruit focused style brimming with aromas of old-fashioned lemonade and flint alongside subtle honeysuckle floral notes. Bright acidity balances with the touch of residual sugar on the palate, whilst the luscious citrus flavours are complemented by an attractive chalky texture.
