d’Arenberg The Noble Wrinkled Riesling

2016

In a Nutshell

Wonderfully varietal yet deliciously sticky!

Tasting Notes

It’s a very pretty and lifted nose with fruit characters of fresh apple, mixed peel and rose petals with a spicy background of star anise, cinnamon sticks and a hint of white pepper. The palate is lively and floral with yellow citrus flowers, green mango and barley sugar. The acidity is linear and spans the whole palate balancing the natural sugar nicely. There are restrained mineral fruit tannins which add a lovely textural element.

Production Notes

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.
