Huia Marlborough Botrytis Riesling

Tonight we enjoyed a late season New Zealand Riesling – 2017 Huia Vineyards Marlborough Botrytis Riesling.

Light orange in color.

Late season Riesling harvest.

46 degrees brix at harvest.

Delicate floral nose with hints of nectarine, pear and green apples.

Sweet on the tongue, big flavor notes of hot Yellow tea sweetened with wildflower honey, and with a long mineral finish. The flavor notes of tea are lingering and prominent

This is one of those wildly unique wines. A Riesling unlike any you’ve ever tasted and meant to be shared with friends if for nothing more than the conversation it will generate.

11.5% ABV.

$23 a bottle.
