d'Arenberg The Noble Wrinkled Riesling | Halves

Grapes affected with Botrytis are small and wrinkly, inspiring the name of d'Arenberg's Noble Wrinkled Riesling, which was originally released in 1985 as The Noble Riesling. Botrytis Cinerea, affectionately known as Noble Rot, weakens grape skins causing water to evaporate which results in sweet, concentrated flavours. These shrivelled berries are basket pressed before a long fermentation, resulting in a luscious wine with intense richness and viscosity.

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.
