2015 Urlar Noble Gisborne Riesling (375mL)
Angus and Davina Thomson moved from Scotland to New Zealand and started a wine business. They named the vineyard Urlar that means “The Earth” in Gaelic due their strong respect for the environment. They follow organic and biodynamic principles. In 2015 they did not make a dry Riesling so all their fruit was left on the vine to become over–ripe and pick up some botrytis. Light but rich, luscious but clean. This is a gorgeously balanced and intense sweet wine.
We are not the only ones who love it, it is on the degustation menu at Vue de Monde.
