Tasting Notes

A hugely complex, rich and ripe nose of rhubarb, candied fruits, orange and mango gives way to a fresher side underpinned by gooseberry and anise as the wine develops in the glass. The wine is very smooth and delicate on the palate, where juicy fruits, honey and luscious cream are wrapped into a mild expression of acidity. The acidity does however come through in the very and delicate finish and brings depth and intensity to this Auslese GK styled expression of Riesling
