Paul Cluver Noble Late Harvest Riesling 2012

Elgin, Overberg, South AfricaPotent white honey, orange peel, lemon curd rule this youthful botrytis affected late harvest riesling from Elgin. Marmalade and apricot fill the palate, though there is a welcome herbal cut of pith/ash/earth on the finish to counter the raisiny sweetness. This is still showing the youthful eagerness of 2012; with time the bashfulness will temper.Tasted: 08 June 2017Tasted by: Treve RingProducer: Paul CluverVarietal: Riesling
