Wine Style & Food Matching The Late Harvest Dessert Wine shows ripe stone fruit characters with citrus impressions of lemons, limes and mandarins while the overtones of luscious honey and raisins come from the noble botrytised grapes. It has a sweet but clean finish. The wine is an excellent match with all cheeses and sweet desserts. It is particularly suited to the ripe flavours of aged and complex blue cheeses. It is perfect for drinking now and will cellar well over the next two to 10 years. Viticulture and Winemaking. This 375ml Late Harvest Desseet Wine is made from 100% Riesling grapes which are sourced from the Waipara Valley of North Canterbury. Our wine making philosophy is, "to create quality, distinctive New Zealand wines by sourcing premium varietals from the regions in which they are most renowned" and our Riesling grapes from Waipara are no exeception. We believe that the extra cool climate and the lime stone soils of this region produce some of the best late harvest and botrytised Rieslings in the country. To enhance the intensity and flavours of our dessert wine, the Riesling grapes are left hanging on the vines until a quarter to one third of the bunches are shrivelled to raisins by noble botrytis before they are hand harvested. The grapes are then very slowly pressed so that the maximum sweetness is extracted from the shrivelled berries. The grape juice is allowed to settle naturally and the clear juice is fermented at low temperatures with naturally complementing yeast strains so that the natural vibrancy, intense fruit flavours and aromas of the wine are preserved and enhanced. This late harvest Riesling wine style balances tingling natural acidity and minerality with the luscious sweetness of late harvested grapes.
