Resistance is futile.

My guilty pleasure at the moment is Nederburg The Winemaster’s Reserve Riesling 2011 (Aroma Drop Inn price: R39.99 a bottle). From Paarl vineyards, it was tank fermented in three batches, each with a different yeast. Plenty of lime and just enough terpene character to add interest. Sweet on entry and thick textured, there’s also a bracing acidity which lends balance. Abv 11.99%, RS 12g/l, TA 7.08g/l, pH 3.05. Score: a very more-ish 16/20.
