Rahona Valley Late Harvest Riesling

This style is rather more like a German Auslese style; it is very sweet and proudly intended to be a rich, dessert style wine. Sometimes Auslese styles have Botrytis influence but not in this case. It features riper citrus notes on the nose, nudging beyond lemon into the grapefruit zone. All the sweetness then gives the wine a luscious, mouthfilling character. The limes then come in towards the end. Its wonderful natural acidity means that this sweetness is in no way cloying. This would ideally match with fruity desserts that are somewhat sweet. The wine should be sweeter than the dessert is a good rule of thumb.
