2017 Abbott Late Harvest Riesling



A traditional Late Harvest, this sweet dessert wine was picked later than our other harvest to naturally intensify the grape sugars, but keep its acidity. Gorgeous.

Suggested aromas: Rich honeyed tones, mineral aspects, citrus zest with baked stone fruit on the palate & supple acidity. *375ml
