Natalie's Score: 88/100

Good concentration yet it's light- to medium-bodied. A lovely melon intensity of flavour with green pear and a long finish.

Riesling food pairings: lightly spiced Indian cuisine; fresh spring rolls with peanut dipping sauce; baked ham with apricot glaze; Cajun chicken skewers; chicken breast with pineapple salsa; turkey with a dried fruit and nut stuffing..
