Bald Hills 2006 Last Light Riesling (Central Otago)

From a small Bannockburn winery, this is an idiosyncratic Riesling that's fun to taste. To begin, there's a slightly vegetal note to its aromas and flavors that's not dissimilar from corn or vegetable oil. This is given focus by powerful citrus notes and complexity through a pinch of dried spices. Off-dry, but it finishes crisp, suggesting it would be a fine partner to sweet-fleshed crustaceans like shrimp or prawns. Joe Czerwinski
