Three very exciting Sweet Wines
Mudbrick Vineyard Reserve Noble Riesling 2014 Marlborough
Honey, beeswax, peach, ginger and spice - powerful, fresh, creamy and packed with lemon and lemon oil aromas. On the palate - very creamy, very sweet and loaded with acidity bringing balance, showing great complexity and completeness; a charming wine with a slippery silken texture.
Ngatarawa Proprietor's Reserve Noble Riesling 2014 Hawke's Bay
Vibrant and pure aromas of lemon, peach, honey and key lime pie; a touch of beeswax and spice. On the palate - juicy, very creamy and very sweet with luscious flavours of peach and sweet apple, whipped butter creaminess and medium+ acidity. Delish!
Passage Rock Late Harvest Viognier 2014 Waiheke Island Auckland
Floral, spicy, very fruity and with a distinctive 'old world' note of volatility (big tick); apricots, peaches, red apples and quinces. On the palate - spicy, fruity, creamy textures and energised palate with great acidity and length. Fabulously long finish!
