14 Hukapapa Dessert Riesling (375ml)

Rich golden colour gives a clue to what you’re in for. The glass is filled with aromas of peach, tropical fruits as well as a hint of apple and citrus. The palate is immediately filled with luscious sweetness and a creamy texture. The tropical and citrus flavours are superbly balanced by the natural acidity and concentration of sugars.

5 STARS & BEST BUY – Cuisine Magazine, Issue 273, Nov 2015
“Like ice wine, this was made from Riesling juice concentrated by freezing. A spicy, aromatic nose suggests peach syrup, lime cordial and floral scent. It’s sweet, yet fresh and light, a bit like a sweet Mosel. Its delicacy, purity, ultra-fine texture and zippy acidity give wonderful balance.”
