Forget it Romeo, Juliet’s the one we want. Especially if you like your Riesling a touch on the sweeter side you’re going to fall in love with this perfectly balanced medium/dry style that has deservedly wooed so many wine judges and critics since its release.
That includes Trophy for Champion Riesling at the NZ Aromatic Wine Comp, Gold at the NZ Aromatic Wine Comp, Gold at the NZ International Wine Show and a cool 93/100 from Master of Wine Bob Campbell. Bob said “A hint of sweetness is balanced by tangy acidity creating lovely tension. An appealing, edgy wine with development potential.”
Dave Clouston’s the man behind the Two Rivers label. Dave grew up on the banks of the Awatere and Wairau Rivers (thus the name) so he’s a Marlborough man through and through. Dave reckons Juliet is a great aperitif (slightly chilled of course) or paired with seafood or spicy Asian cuisine.
