Saint Clair - Awatere Valley Reserve Noble Riesling 2013Marlborough
A deliciously complex desert wine showing flavours of luscious pear and stone fruit along with a hint of beeswax.
Golden in colour.
An enticing bouquet of soft dried apricot dipped in honey and underlying notes of orange blossom.
The palate shows luscious pear and stone fruit with a hint of beeswax and a long lingering honey and lemon zest finish.
This wine is drinking beautifully now but will age well and further develop complexity for 6-10 years.
Serve chilled with ripened soft cheeses or dried fruits. It is also a beautiful match with fresh fruit salad or an apricot pie with whipped cream.
