2019 Vignerons Schmolzer & Brown 'S' Riesling

$47.00

Place: King Valley, VIC

Variety: Riesling

Farming: Sustainable

'For the German Riesling nuts: this wine most closely sits in an Auslese Feinherb style, with 41g/ L residual sugar and 10.0% alcohol. There’s enough botrytis character on board to give the wine that lovely characteristic breadthening on the palate and a little apricot character, but it’s not what an Australian drinker would call a ‘sticky’.

Candied peel, orange juice, apricot kernel and hints of paraffin. Lush and rounded but restrained with tight natural acidity. There’s a lovely fresh pulpy apricot intensity to it, with some dried rose petal and peach juice notes and just enough botrytis character to give the wine a lovely texture. This wine rewards a ten minute decant in advance of drinking to allow the complexities to open up.' — note from Schmolzer & Brown
