This was an ideal grape growing season with a warm summer and a long lingering dry autumn. Although purposely harvested late in the season with noble botrytis it was fermented to produce a dry style of riesling.
There are plentiful aromas and flavours that are reminiscent of citrus fruits, honeydew melon, pawpaw and tropical spices. It expands on the palate to become broad shouldered, mouth filling and rich but retains a spine of sinuous acidity and minerality that help draw out a lingering hint of freshly crushed root ginger.
Wine is a natural health food.
