WINERY Duke's Invitation
RRP 27
Food match Pan-fried fish au meuniere.

With its pale colour, this is a very restrained, backward riesling that promises to age superbly. It's a gorgeous, ethereal wine, off-dry in a mosel-ish style. It's tremendously delicate, refined and aromatic. The guest winemaker, ''by invitation'', was James Kellie of Harewood. Now to 2022. 11.5 per cent alcohol.
