Nederburg Private Bin S316 Weisser Riesling Noble Late Harvest. We bought a good chunk of this wine at the Nederburg Auction many years ago. We only have a few bottles left now. Very limited.
Only grapes affected with Noble Rot (the beneficial form of the Botrytis cinerea mould) are carefully hand-selected at harvest. Noble Rot basically dries out the grapes causing them to become slightly raisined. This concentrates the sweetness and the complexity of flavours and aromas in the grapes. 100% Weisser Riesling from Paarl.
The Nederburg Private Bin S316 Weisser Riesling Noble Late Harvest is an excellent example of a mature South African dessert wines. The peachy, apricot flavours of its youth have developed into deeper, orange marmalade-y flavours and aromas. it s quite honey-ed with lovely hints of pineapple and other tropical fruits.
