2011 Riesling noble

Translucent with a hint of pale straw. Sweet scented honey and baked fruit with a subtle hint of lime. Taste of caramel and honeyed fig with a hint of lime coming through at the finish.

In 2011 we had a hot summer and a harvest starting off dry. In the end we had some rain so that the left already dried out Riesling clusters started to get a noble botrytis. We watched them carefully and picked them at the right time to cellar a noble dessert wine. The manufacturing of the fruits in the winery took place in a very gentle way. The cool and slow fermentation lasted till August 2011. The result is wonderful full flavoured dessert wine.

match to the great New Zealand Pavlova. Or any other meringue based desserts.
