2012 Late Harvest Riesling

 

TASTING NOTES

Harvested in December the wine shows a beautiful late harvest bouquet of honey, peaches, dried fruit and melon.  The acidity is bright and refreshing perfectly balanced with the fruit and residual sugar.  A really nice wine to drink young but if given time it will gain more of the classic kerosene notes found in premium Rieslings around the world.
