About the wine

Tasting notes

Superbly refined and elegant ripe nose of honey, ripe apricots, pineapple, and roasted almonds. Despite its ripeness and sweetness, the wine proves refreshing by its fine acidity and leaves a juicy mouthfeel on the palate. It shows a perfect balance between its creamy ripe exotic fruit bouquet and a juicy acidity which leads to an enormous length.

The Grape

Riesling

A very special white grape variety that makes aromatic, age worthy and incredibly fine wines that are loved by wine connoisseurs the world over. Made most famous for the exceptional expressions that come out of Germany, Riesling epitomises white wine of elegance, finesse and complexity. From bone dry to intensely sweet, there's a broad spectrum of expressions ranging from lean and crisp flavours of lime, green apple, pear, jasmine and chalky minerality, to richly flavoured and highly perfumed expressions with Thai basil, saffron, ginger, papaya, nutmeg and honey. Incredible wines and alway good value!
