Description

2015 Hells Gate Riesling “The Mother in Law”

Winemaker’s Comments

This is a rich and vibrant low alcohol wine (6% Alc/Vol). Aromas of fresh spring flowers, orange sherbet and berry fruits are apparent on the nose. The palate is rich, opulent and balanced. Light fragrant notes of honeysuckle, lychee, strawberries, and cherry blossom run through the wine, moving through into the floral and sherbet-like characteristic of the mid-palate and finishing with well-balanced acidity nurturing the natural sweetness of the wine.
