"2016 provided Mt Difficulty with great conditions for botrytis development, especially in the Silver Tussock vineyard. This expression is tight, crisp and lively, well stocked with honeyed peach and sweet apple flavours, all carried by zingy acidity."
Burnt marmalade, and apricot compete with beeswax notes in the aroma of this Riesling. Ripe apricot characters introduce this wine to the palate with a hint of marmalade adding complexity. A generous but balanced amount of residual sugar (137g/L) has been retained to harmonise with the wines acidity. The acidity really reigns the wine in and provides focus and linearity. Mt Difficulty Tinwald Burn, Silver Tussock, Noble Riesling will improve for 7-9 years given optimal cellaring conditions.
