Winemaking:
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: 9.2 g/litre, Residual Sugar: 196.00 g/litre, pH: 3.3.

Food match:
Enjoy after a meal, with blue cheese or fruit desserts.
