    Winemaker's Notes:

    This is an off-dry style Riesling with purity and focus.

    Fantastic aperitif. Sweet fleshed crustaceans such as prawn and crab. A wide variety of Asian-influenced cuisine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Riesling was made with about 70% botrytis infected fruit – an unusually high proportion. As a result, it has more alcohol and weight than normal for this wine. It certainly has a very expressive nose, with pronounced honey and musk notes over warm grapefruit and orange blossom plus a whiff of damp earth. The positive effects of the botrytis really come through on the palate with a good amount of sweetness and crisp acid, finishing long and layered. Drinking now, it should cellar to 2019+.

    Very sweet and honey nose that keeps the sweet flavours. Could be used as an aperitif and has a long finish that comes with it. Rather sweet for a Riesling but I like it.
