The grapes for the Late Harvest Riesling come from the estate’s oldest vines. They are close-planted to encourage competition and therefore decrease yields. After careful hand-selection, the grapes were traditionally crushed (i.e by foot) and left to steep overnight before being lightly pressed. Natural, wild yeasts undertook the ferment, which lasted over a year.This luscious dessert wines has aromas of apples, lemon and honeycomb and a tantalising suggestion of caramel and peach.Though the palate is rich, there is a strong citrusy acidity and perhaps a little saffron. As it ages, this is developing more honeyed intensity.
