Winemaker Notes
The botrytis infection is carefully monitored and the Riesling grapes are hand-picked when the balance between delicate floral and citrus characters and the richer marmalade flavours of Botrytis is optimum. Gentle pressing commences as soon as the grapes arrive at the winery, typically taking 48hrs, and the juice is transferred to stainless steel tanks. Racked from solids after 2 days, it is then fermented at cool temperatures with a neutral yeast to showcase varietal characters. Fermentation is stopped at a low alcohol level, resulting in an integrated wine that retains fresh Riesling characters. Bottled under screwcap, to enable the wine to be enjoyed at its optimum.
Food Pairing Notes
Due to its crisp freshness, this wine matches with both light and rich deserts, from sorbets through to chocolate cake, and full bodied cheese.

I am not a wine drinker in fact I have not until I tasted this ever been able to get through a glass of wine. But this omg it is suttle yet very refreshing keeps its taste after you've eaten. It is great with any food (not sure about seafood/shellfish) as I'm allergic but goes great with a cream brulee and makes a great sauce for mousse or pasta. This wine I went through 2 bottles for drinking and cooking. So yum.

Enjoyed it with a selection of sweet deli cakes and tiramisu. Delicious. Will have to get another bottle for cellaring.
