Wairau River Botrytised Riesling 37.5cl 10% ABV
Botrytis, also known as Noble Rot, is a condition that affects thin skinned grapes under certain weather conditions (requires misty mornings and sunny afternoons). It causes them to dehydrate which makes the grapes shrivel and concentrate the sugars creating sweet wines. This rich botrytis affected Riesling has an intense complex nose with aromas of honey, orange and lime marmalade. These characters translate generously onto the palate and are complemented by soft textured fruit and balancing acidity.
