|About the product|
|Product||Pegasus Bay Encore Noble Riesling|
|Grape variety||Riesling 100%|
|Tasting notes||On release, it is a bright lemon-gold colour. The abundant aromas and flavours evoke impressions of ripe cantaloupe melon, mango, pineapple, lychees, and manuka honey. On the palate, the wine is rich and unctuous. Underneath this, however, there is a streak of minerality and fine acidity that keep it fresh, lively and refined, drawing out its lingering after flavours.|
