Waipara Hills Equinox Late Harvest Riesling NV

SORRY THIS WINE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

Clover honey, pineapple, wild flower, nougat and cashew nut aromas lead to a rich decadent vibrant sweet spectrum of tropical fruit and honey flavours with a hint of oak to coat the mouth. Fresh acidity and lingering flavours make this a very special wine. Best served at the end of the meal with cheese and walnuts.
