Whitehaven Noble Riesling 2021, Marlborough

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Dec-2021
Bright, even, pale yellow with depth. The nose is complex, gently growing in volume, aromas of botrytis influenced beeswax, honey melded with lifted white floral, lemon balm and apricot. Full-bodied, luscious to taste, rich on the palate with fresh aromas of apricot, lemon balm entwined with honey, beeswax, a hint of white spice and lifted floral adorned. The wine has excellent concentration and intensity; a complex range of flavours are in harmony with the support of vibrant acidity. The mouthfeel is unctuous and exquisite, filling the palate with pure joy. This is a harmonious, complex noble Riesling with great balance and charm. Match with foie gras and blue cheese over the next 10 years. Botrytis influenced fruit, fermented to 9.5% alc, 186 g/l RS. Vegan friendly. 19-/20 pts (95 pts) Dec 2021 RRP $30 (375ml bottle)
