A stalwart of the New Zealand Riesling firmament, Kim Crawfordrsquo;s 2006 version is a solid effort that boasts some beautiful pink-grapefruit aromas and flavors. Ultimately, this lacks a bit of complexity, but it nicely balances sugar and acid in a plump, easy-to-drink wine with no hard edges.
Shows very good intensity to lemon-lime, green apple and mineral accents. Drink now.
