Description

This Triple Champion Trophy… Triple Gold Medal… and Champion NZ Riesling in Australia… was also Air NZ’s dessert wine of choice in their Business Class Cabins for 3 consecutive vintages - 2016-2017-2018. The winery was committed to holding reserve stocks of this 2017 vintage to honour the selection contract. We all know the impact of the pandemic on our National Air Carrier… which has dramatically impacted on their ability to draw down their wine contracts. Inadvertently leaving this famous, pioneering Marlborough winery with an unforeseen surplus of hedonistic Botrytised Dessert Riesling. They have asked FWD to CLEAR it at the literal giveaway price of $14.99 bottle… while keeping its identity secret under our legendary “Hidden Label” program. It is a staggering buy at $14.99, (normally exceptional buying @ $29) and will reward you with moments of hedonism. It is made from hand harvested, bunch selected Wairau Valley Riesling that is slowly pressed and undergoes whole bunch cool fermentation. Divine to sip… much like you’d do with a decadent Port. The French would serve it pre dinner with cheeses… which is the perfect match.

Smells

Exotic perfume of orange blossom, mandarin peel, Manuka honey, beeswax, hints of dried figs and toffee. I could smell the glass all night long.

Tastes

Wonderful botrytis influence giving apricot, dried fig and toffee flavours which marry perfectly with beeswax and honey nuances. Luscious and decadent, so much so... that you just might consume all 375ml yourself. There is a wonderful, cleansing acid thread, weaving its magic through the decadent palate, giving balance, poise, and length. Superb drinking now through 2025.

Your description is spot on. I have never been disappointed with a “Hidden Label”. Lucky us.
