Saint Clair 2016 Vintage

Saint Clair
Godfrey's Creek Reserve Noble Riesling 2016

A delicious dessert wine with flavours of honey, apricots and citrus, with a wonderful silky finish.

Winemaker:

Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark

Colour:

Golden

Aroma:

Deliciously complex with a bouquet of poached apricot, candied citrus and white clover honey.

Palate:

Opulent and silky with rich orange, lemon and cocoa notes.

Ageing potential:

This wine is drinking beautifully now and will continue to develop gracefully with further bottle age.

Viticulture:

Saint Clair Godfrey’s Creek Noble Reserve Riesling is grown on John and Lynne Walsh’s vineyard in the heart of the Marlborough Valley. Select grape bunches were hung on the vine until late in the season to promote raisining and botrytis. The grapes were hand harvested, whole bunch pressed and tank fermented with a specially selected yeast strain. The fermentation was arrested at the point where the residual sugar perfectly balanced the natural acidity.

Analysis:

Alcohol: 10.5% v/v, Titratable Acidity: 9.2g/l, Residual Sugar: 196 g/l, pH: 3.30.
