d'Arenberg The Noble Wrinkled Riesling 375ml
Intense & floral on the nose. Wild honey, lemon balm & eucalyptus. The palate is similar, with concentrated flavours of ripe lemon & mead. It's spicy & exotic - persistent & yummy!
Botrytis Cinerea, affectionately known as Noble Rot, weakens grape skins causing water to evaporate which results in sweet, concentrated flavours. These shrivelled berries are basket pressed before a long fermentation, resulting in a luscious wine with intense richness & viscosity.
What's behind the name? Grapes affected with Botrytis are small & wrinkly, inspiring the name of this wine, which was originally released in 1985 as The Noble Riesling.
