As mentioned yesterday, I’m trying my best to make this Queenstown trip holiday rather than a wine tour.
– Riesling looks like a hard slog. Just getting the sweetness balance right seems hard enough, with the driest wines underwhelmed the most. Many producers seem to be pouring older vintages, so looks like consumers don’t seem to be buying them either.
Tomorrow will be almost wine free. Maybe…
Definitely know the conflict of traveling in a wine region and trying to avoid turning it into a wine trip. My partner gives me 'the look' which says we've been going to too many vineyards/wineries. We'll be in Queestown in a couple of weeks ourselves so I'm keen to hear about what you enjoyed
