Patricia Noble Riesling 375mL 2019
“Noble Rot” has been a long tradition at Brown Brothers. John C. Brown was the first Australian winemaker to recognise botrytis mould in 1934. The grapes for the 2019 vintage were handpicked from the Milawa Vineyard that has been producing botrytis since the early 1960s.
Fresh lifted aromatics and classic botrytis characters like orange marmalade, citrus and honey, the complexity, richness and elegance of this wine make it a delicious partner to desserts as well as cheese platters.
