Tohu ‘Raiha Reserve’ Marlborough Noble Riesling 2016

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Sep-2018
Bright, deep gold colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly packed and concentrated with deep an dense layered aromas of ripe tropical fruit and citrus fruit entwined with honey, nuances of marmalade and musky botrytis, along with a little lift. This is opulent and decadent. Very sweet to taste and light-bodied, the palate has rich and succulent, vibrant flavours of ripe tropical fruit, citrus fruit, wld honey, marmalade and caramel and musk. The mouthfeel balances unctuousness with acid freshness, and the wine flows along a rich line with good energy to a rich and opulent finish. This is a beautifully rich, opulent and vibrant Noble Riesling with tropical fruit and citrus fruit, along with honey, nectar and musk on an unctuous, but fresh palate. Match with fruit and baked desserts and crème caramel over the next 4 years. Hand-picked botrytis affected fruit from the Awatere Valley, fermented in stainless-steel to 11.0% alc. and 155 g/l RS, TA 7.8 g/L and pH 3.4. (375 ml) 18.5+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $25.15
