The Noble Wrinkled Riesling 2016
The Story Behind The Name
Grapes affected with Botrytis are small and wrinkly, inspiring the name of this wine, which was originally released in 1985 as The Noble Riesling.
Almost a 50/50 blend of McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills Riesling, this wine is clean, concentrated and refreshing. The nose is lifted with an abundance of honey and citrus notes and the palate is full of lemon pie, honey dew and quince paste flavours. The acidity is tight but forgiving, resulting in a beautifully balanced wine with a long finish.
