It really is incredible that a wine such as this is still available. Whilst the dream of True & Daring was founded on the belief that the winery would stay true to one grape and be daring enough to take on Riesling, and only Riesling, as the wine they produce, it was alas, a dream that has failed and the winery no-longer exists. Such as shame when you taste this North Canterbury wine. It is world class Riesling, aging beautifully.
Just off dry and showing beautiful balance it has lovely clean citrus notes with just enough aged complexities to give it extra character. A wonderfully crisp and refreshing style that is an absolute bargain at a price like this.
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"Youthful, yet full of fabulous flavours, and shows wonderful aromas of lemon sorbet, white nectarine and floral with a hint of spice complexity on the nose. The palate offers excellent fruit concentration and weight, wonderfully enhanced by subtle sweetness which is brilliantly balanced by juicy acidity. Long and delectable on the finish. At its best: now to 2022."
