100% Riesling. Pale gold with green-gold tints. While young the aromas are pure and fresh with delicate notes of dried pear, cumquat and white flowers, with time these aromas will develop more complexity and richness moving to beeswax, marmalade and candied citrus zest. The palate is elegant and restrained with a subtle lusciousness on the mid palate which will develop more complexity over time. Flavours of dried stone fruits and cumquat zest are complemented by a fine seam of acidity leading to a refreshing, rather than cloyingly sweet finish. The botrytised grapes were selectively handpicked with the fruit showing pure finesse, richness and balance. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and the juice given a cool, even fermentation to ensure the retention of the pure fruit characters. ABV 10.5%
