2018 Whitehaven Marlborough Noble Riesling

"The word 'Noble' is code for botrytis which is a fungal 'disease' that affects grapes when they are ripe and shrivels them, reducing their moisture content so that their flavours become rich, concentrated and luscious. Riesling is one of the best grapes to use for botrytised sweet wines because its naturally high acidity creates a great balance of flavour with the sweetness, along with plenty of lime, lemon and honey flavours."
