Giesen Giesen 1998 Canterbury (New Zealand) Riesling ($11.99)
Pale straw color, with ripe lime and apple aromas and flavors; crisp and fresh, dry and tart, long and cleansing. A totally different take on Riesling than you'll find North of the Equator; so delicious and approachable that you want to gulp it down. U.S. importer: USA Wine Imports, NYC; A Wine Mates Selection. (May 16, 2000)

FOOD MATCH: Perfect with Shanghai-style steamed fish with hoisin sauce, ginger and scallions.

Previous day's wine note

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
