2017 MadFish Late Harvest Riesling
Riesling is a supremely versatile white grape, able to produce a diverse range of styles - from lean and searingly dry, to unctuously sweet.
The Madfish Late Harvest sits merrily in the middle of these two extremes. To achieve its medium sweet profile, the grapes for left on the vine for an extended period in order to increase sugar and ripeness levels. This gives the final wine a delicious weight and texture, but Riesling’s naturally high acidity ensures the elevated sweetness never becomes cloying.
Pale gold in colour, with aromas of honeysuckle and ripe orchard fruits. Generous fruit sweetness on the taste, with flavours of ripe and dried mango, and tinned pineapple. The wine offers silky body and texture, and a clean, refreshing finish.
Fragrant, fruity and luscious…this wine is the perfect partner for spicy Asian fare or as a refreshing start to a summer’s evening.
While ready to drink now, the body and acidity will ensure ageing potential.
