Valli ‘Dolce Vita’ Central Otago Late Harvest Riesling 2011

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 27-Oct-2011
Botrytis affected fruit from Lowburn, fermented to 9.5% alc. and 169 g/L rs. Brilliant, light, lemon-straw yellow colour with a pale rim, The nose is tightly bound and intense with aromas of citrus fruits, florals, honey and marmalade along with delicate notes of minerals and herbs. Very sweet, this is youthfully tight initially, showing lifted lemon zest-like flavours with honey and marmalade that blossom with intricate talc botrytis and mineral notes on mid-palate. The richness is extremely well-balanced by fine, lacy acidity providing smooth, fine textures and a sustained finish with honey and lime zest flavours. A luscious, elegant and racy sweet wine to serve with fruit desserts, blue cheeses or as an aperitif over the next 4-5 years. (375 ml) 18.5-/20 Oct 2011 RRP $45.00
