(2022) Though part of the Doctors' low-alcohol range, this is farmed conventionally - it's the unconverted 30-odd grammes of residual sugar that give the 9% alcohol and lovely balance. A portion comes from clay in Brancott, the rest from Wairau greywacke stones. Lovely floral notes, it's a ringer for Mosel Riesling, with delicious limey fruit, a sherbetty brightness and pure apple acidity. A touch of phenolic grip just adds some structure around the edges.
(2020) Fabulous sherbetty nose, floral and clean, but with that shining brightness and vivacity, it is indeed perfectly summery. Great fun, and off-dry teetering on medium-sweet with its 33g/l of sugar. No UK stockists listed at time of review.
(2020) A very pretty Riesling with 16g/l residual sugar. Fine green-flecked aromas again, plenty of apple and citrus punch, orange and lime, a lovely sours character, fabulously fresh and dry in the finish despite the sugar.
