The grapes were harvested late in the season to allow for 30-40% Botrytis to develop 'noble rot'. After clarifciation the must was fermented and the perfect balenced was achieved. The wine was cooled before sulphuring, the wine then spent 3 months on yeast lees before filtration and bottling.
This late harvest style riesling is concentrated and rich with peach and apricot skin, citrus zest, melon and orange blossom aromatics, the palate is long with frest acidity providing balance against the smooth oily texture and a touch of spice.
