Johanneshof Marlborough Noble Late Harvest Riesling 2011

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-May-2013
Bright golden yellow colour with some orange hues, lighter on rim. The bouquet is softly concentrated with aromas of ripe apricots, tangerines and marmalade infused with honey, musk and talc botrytis notes. This gently unfolds its layers of aromatics. Very sweet to taste, waves of rich and decadent flavours of ripe citrus fruits, apricots, marmalade and honey are entwined with musky botrytis. This is subtly opulent and builds with an unctuousness, the mouthfeel lusciously rich and seamless. The underlying acidity is soft, and enhances the roundness on palate, but has the drive to lead to a very long, lively finish with harmoniously integrated nuances of caramel and honey. This is a seamless and gently unctuous Riesling dessert wine to serve with panna cotta, crème caramel and crème brulee over the next 5-6+ years. Hand-picked Riesling, 98% botrytised, fermented to 10.0% alc. and 150 g/L rs. (375ml) 18.5/20 May 2013 RRP $37.00
