This richly botrytised style is Edel and Warwick’s homage to the great noble wines of Germany called Trockenbeerenauslese.
Johanneshof Noble Late Harvest Riesling 2018 seduces with its naturally highly concentrated bouquet packed with honey and sundried apricot flavours. This is reflected on the palate with decadent flavours of ripe citrus fruit, honeycomb and apricot, entwined with subtle botrytis which gently unfolds with layers of aromatics.
With an oily and rich mouthfeel this luscious dessert wine is sweet but balanced with a good acid spine and excellent harmony and richness.
Serve with crème brûlée, apple pie or apricot crumble. 375 ml
