  • Longview Epitome Late Harvest Riesling (375ml)  2016

New Stock! Pale golden-yellow color with intensely flavour and  balanced acid. The aroma has slight notes of golden delicious apple and orange blossom.  A refreshing palate of peach, ripe citrus and dried apricots is followed by a wonderfully clean finish that will compliment most desserts and especially cheese.


Winemaking

2013 presented us with wonderful conditions to produce a late harvest style. The Riesling dried on the vine and was picked very late in the season. Our steep southern slopes which house our riesling helps minimise the suns radiation; this in turn gives us a long ripening period and helps us maintain good acidity.


In The Spotlight

"Our 2013 Epitome Late Harvest Riesling has won it's second trophy at the world's most important wine show - Decanter World Wine Awards. Best Sweet Wine under 15quid in the world! And it also won the Sweet Wine Trophy at the Royal Adelaide Wine Show last year!"
