Subtly sweet, our 2014 Late Harvest Estate Riesling bursts with aromas of peach, dried apricot, and papaya – all of which are amplified when sipping. Quietly layered, this has us dreaming of tree-ripened stone fruits warmed by the sun. Best enjoyed after a good meal with a fruity dessert or soft cheeses.
We aim to produce a Late Harvest wine that is versatile enough to pair with a savoury first course or with a sweet dessert. We handpicked 3.5 tons of Riesling on November 20th from our 5-acre Riesling block containing clones 21b and 49. This was more than a month later than the harvest for our Dry Riesling. Harvest-ed at 20.5 Brix, we aimed to preserve some sweetness. A slow and cool ferment in stainless steel tanks preserved the soft acidity and fruity character of the grapes.
Food Pairing Notes
Our Late Harvest Riesling will pair well with cheesecake, sautéed vanilla pears with Zabaglione, wild raspberry crème caramel or drink it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and Grandmother’s apple pie.
