Producer: Mount Horrocks
Bright light yellow gold. Delicate yet intense aromas of orange marmalade, star anise and vanilla bean, with wildflower notes that beguile the senses. Classic cordon cut flavours ring true in this vintage, where clever winemaking technique concentrates the natural citrus flavours of the grape, intensifying the sweetness yet retaining the intrinsic acidity of the Riesling grape. It‰۪s incredibly sweet, lively and appealing, full of flavour yet not overpowering and has a crisp clean sweet citrus finish..
Ageing Potential: 1-3 Years
"A unique and amazing wine that is a prefect blend of sweetness and acidity; a huge concentration of flavours that somehow still leaves the mouth clean and ready for more." - John Wilson, Irish Times Silver Medal Winner London Wine Fair May 2013
