Sugar Loaf Marlborough Noble Riesling (2018)

The outstanding 2018 vintage (5*) was made by botrytis-affected grapes, hand-harvested at Rapaura and fermented in seasoned French oak barrels. Golden, with a richly scented bouquet, it has lovely depth and poise, with concentrated honey and apricot flavours, vigorous, sweet and oily-textured. Drink now or cellar.
