    2014 Crown Range Cellar "Limited Release" Dolce Vita Late Harvest Riesling

    Limited Release 375ml

    Floral, spice, rose, orange blossom and apricot aromas.Rich, round and sweet on the palate with complex, ripe citrus flavours. Perfectly balanced acidity reigns in the residual sugar. The mid-harvest rains in the Waitaki brought with them a classic botrytis infection, most notably and desirably in the Riesling. As they say, - every cloud has it's silver lining" this wine is it -Grant Taylor

    “Brilliant, light straw-yellow colour with hints of gold, pale on the rim.  The nose is elegant in presentation with tightly bound and restrained aromas of limes, yellow florals, savoury wild honey and hints of talc botrytis, unveiling a subtle, refreshing amalgam of herbs and minerals.  Sweet to taste and light-bodied, the palate features soft, mouthfilling flavours of savoury honey entwined with limes, yellow florals, herbs and minerals.  This has a fresh, bright, lively mouthfeel with a core of light phenolic textures providing linearity.  This has a little unctuousness which is balanced by the fresh and crisp acidity, and the wine flows smoothly and harmoniously to a long finish of savoury yellow floral and wild honey nuances.  This is a soft but refreshing sweet, late-harvest Riesling with savoury floral and honey aromas and flavours.  Serve as an aperitif and with fruit desserts over the next 3-4 years.  Waitaki Valley Riesling fruit botrytis affected.  9.0% alc.”

    “A delightful sweet wine, the lifted bouquet shows candied apple, honey, marmalade and mixed spice characters, leading to a elegantly sweet palate that delivers appealing fruit flavours and silky texture, nicely structured by racy acidity. At its best: now to 2018.”
