Konrad ‘Sigrun Noble Two’ Marlborough Riesling/Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Feb-2011
The ‘Noble Two' designation refers to the two varieties used. The fruit was sourced from the Konrad family sites in the Waihopi, picked at an average of 45 Brix. 58% Riesling stainless-steel fermented and 42% Sauvignon Blanc barrel fermented and aged 1 year in oak, with a final analysis of 9.5% alc. and 200 g/L rs. Good deep, bright, light golden-yellow in colour, this has a very intense nose of marmalade and honey from the noble rot, alongside noticeable VA. On palate very sweet, luscious and unctuous, the botrytised fruit is the feature and the volatility reduced in impact. Beautiful nuances of florals show, along with racy acidity which provides perfect cut, liveliness and tension. The finish is very long and lingering. This decadent wine will match creamy desserts, blue cheeses as well as pates over the next 6-8 years plus. (375 ml) 18.5+/20 Dec 2010 RRP $22.95
