Late Harvest Riesling 2019
Straw yellow in the glass with intense aromas of guava, pineapple and nectarine with notes of fresh flowers and herbs. The palate is medium sweet but balanced by ample acidity with flavours of pineapple and golden delicious apple. The finish is long and lingering with flavours of apple and caramelDownload Notes

BRIX AT HARVEST
Pair with salty cheeses or medium-sweet desserts. Drinking well on release but will continue to develop over many years into more complex flavours and aromas.
Only made in select vintages, 2019 turned into a perfect icewine harvest at 13th Street. Following the pressing of the juice for icewine, the frozen grapes were allowed to slightly warm resulting in the perfect juice for Late Harvest Riesling. After pressing, the must was transferred to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. At 86 grams/litre of residual sugar remaining in the wine, the fermentation was stopped leaving a perfect balance of acidity and sweetness. After a further 6 months in tank, the wine was bottled in February 2021.
