MONDILLO NINA LATE HARVEST RIESLING CENTRAL OTAG O18 375ML
Concentrated aromas of peach, citrus, honey and floral fruits. A softly concentrated wine, perfectly balanced, with a lingering apple finish.
Nina contains 100% Riesling fruit, and is only produced in years that natural botrytis occurs. Each grape cluster is carefully chosen and picked by hand to ensure that the best botrytis berries are selected.
The 2018 vintage contains 60% botrytis affected fruit after a warm spring, followed by the hottest January on record which meant we had to wait for the cooler weather to arrive before botrytis set in and the fruit was ready to be picked on 8th May. Only a small amount of Nina will be available from this vintage, just 960 bottles.
‘Nina’ Late Harvest Riesling is named in tribute to Domenic’s late mother Giovanina - a wonderfully sweet Italian lady; affectionately referred to as ‘Nina’.
