This richly botrytised style is Warwick and Edel's homage
to her home of Rheingau in Germany and its great noble wines called 'Trockenbeerenauslese'
Johanneshof Noble Late Harvest Riesling 2018 seduces with its naturally highly concentrated bouquet packed with honey and sundried apricot flavours. This is reflected on the palate with decadent flavours of ripe citrus fruit, honeycomb and apricot, entwined with subtle botrytis which gently unfolds with layers of aromatics.
With an oily and rich mouthfeel this luscious dessert wine is sweet but balanced with a good acid spine and excellent harmony and richness. Serve with crème brûlée, apple pie or apricot crumble.
