Best known for consistently delicious Pinot Noir, Spearhead has upped its game by bringing on lauded winemaker Grant Stanley. For the Riesling, he combines estate and sourced fruit – half whole bunch pressed and the other seeing 24-hour skin contact. Honest and satisfying, it discreetly lays out its charms of lemon, tangerine, green leaf and apple sorbet. The light-weight palate is shored up by a steely frame. Lip smacking with just a suggestion of sweetness.
