    February 19, 2017 - Bought based on Calum's Corkers' review. Excellent QPR. Apparently used to be Corban's best block and one of the most reliable blocks for Riesling in NZ. At this price it doesn't disappoint. Not dry nor sweet - a great balanced Riesling.

    February 17, 2017 - This is 'Montana Waipara Riesling by Brancott Estate', their bog standard cheapie brand. This is not the Brancott Letter series. Nor the Montana 'South Island' label.

    Well chilled. Screw cap.

    Bargain. For approx $nz 9.00 this is outstanding Riesling. Great concentration, lively acidity - if drunk early - lovely New World Waipara Riesling flavours. Spatlese-Kabbinett style. Finishes semi-dry, not really dry. Not hugely complex Riesling, but a bargain for the price. Outstanding 'quaffer.'

    VFM? V good. Buy again. Drink young. If on promo for $8.99 a super bargain.
