Mélanie Pfister Silberberg Noble Riesling 2007
WineSpark Price €42.24
This is a very special and delightful sweet wine, only produced in the best years.
The process for sweetening the grapes in this wine is called noble rot. The grapes are allowed to hang on the vine long after normal harvest, so they gain sweetness, concentration and complexity.
Mélanie tells me 2007 was one of those years where everything fell into place to make this wine possible. After a rainy summer, the end of August until the end of October saw nothing but sunny and windy days - just what you need for healthy, rotten berries.
One sniff and you’re in sweet wine heaven - it’s honeyed with inviting notes of orange peel and lemon rind. On the palate it’s gentle, persistent and balanced. It has great acidity and is perfectly balanced.
This wine would round off a nice meal perfectly - you can drink it on its own, or try pairing with something fresh but not too sweet - lemon tart would be ideal.
Please note this comes in a 50cl bottle.
