This richly botrytised style is Edel and Warwick’s homage to the great noble wines of Germany called Trockenbeerenauslese.

“The amber-hued 2018 Noble Late Harvest Riesling offers up aromas of
truffled honey, orange marmalade and apricot preserves. Rich and
powerful, this full-bodied sweet wine seamlessly marries together its
alcohol (11.5%) and residual sugar (178 grams per liter) without any
sense of warmth or cloying, as the stickiness is all cleaned up on the
finish by vibrant, ripe-citrus acidity. It's one of the very few New World
wines I've tasted that can compare to a German Beerenauslese or
Trockenbeerenauslese. I suspect it will keep for decades, but there's no
real reason to wait.”  'Robert Parker The Wine Advocate' 23 April 2021, Joe Czerwinski - 96/100 Points

Serve with crème brûlée, apple pie or apricot crumble, or as Joe suggests
with a salty cheese like Stilton. Drink 2021-2030 or beyond. 375 ml
