Barker’s Marque, "3 Brooms" Riesling, Marlborough, NZ 2017
GREEN APPLE & GRAPEFRUIT PEEL. CRISP, MINERAL, ACID-DRIVEN.
Hailing from the southeast corner of Marlborough’s winemaking region, this cooler-climate Riesling highlights the fresh fruit and mineral qualities unique to the Awatere Valley. Floral notes, bright citrus, a hint of chamomile, and the varietal’s distinct diesel aroma are followed by fresh flavors of green apples, crisp acidity, and a dry, juicy finish make this a fantastic summer sipper and a great alternative for fans of NZ Sauvignon Blanc looking to for something familiar yet exotic.
Serving Suggestion: Grapefruit, seaweed, & crab salad w/ miso dressing. Shrimp salad w/ lime, cilantro, & Greek yogurt served in an avocado half.
