Brown Brothers ‘Patricia’ King Valley Noble Riesling 2014

Sweet Wine from Australia - Victoria
Review Date : 05-Jul-2018
Full, deep, golden-yellow colour with slight orange hues at the heart, lighter on the edge. The nose is a little restrained in volume, but possesses a packed and deeply concentrated core of ripe tropical fruit and citrus fruit melded to orange marmalade, crystallised fruits and a little toffee, unfolding a minerally edge of freshness. Very sweet to taste and light-bodied, the palate has a rich and deep, decadent heart of ripe tropical fruits, apricots and citrus fruit, along with orange marmalade, wild honey and notes of caramel and toffee. The sweetness has restraint and the mouthfeel is harmonious and rounded, with soft, fine textures. The acidity is soft and integrated, and the palate flows smoothly to a lingering finish. This is a rich and flavoursome Noble Riesling with soft and restrained sweetness, but decadent tropical fruit, apricot, marmalade, honeyed and caramel flavours. Match with steamed desserts and crème caramel over the next 4 years. Hand-picked Riesling fruit from the King Valley with significant botrytis infection fermented to 9.0% alc. and 164 g/L RS, with TA 9.2 g/L and pH 3.43. Winemaker: Cate Looney. (375 ml) 18.5/20 Jul 2018 RRP $24.99
