Mondillo Nina 2017

$38.00
Vendor: Mondillo

Available

Concentrated aromas of peach, citrus, honey and floral fruits. A softly concentrated wine, perfectly balanced, with a lingering apple finish. Enjoy!

Nina contains 100% Riesling fruit, and is only produced in years that natural botrytis occurs. Each grape cluster is carefully chosen and picked by hand to ensure that the best botrytis berries are selected. Our 2017 vintage contains 60% botrytis affected fruit after a challenging growing season due to a cooler start to the summer, which resulted in lower yields. Only a small amount of Nina will be available from this vintage, just 467 bottles!

Our ‘Nina’ Late Harvest Riesling is named in tribute to Domenic’s late mother Giovanina - a wonderfully sweet Italian lady; affectionately referred to as ‘Nina’.

Drink/Cellar: Now until 2021

Serve chilled with soft cheeses, dessert, as an aperitif or as dessert!

“Quite a sweet dessert riesling with lime, apricot and honey flavours. Sweetness is balanced by assertive acidity that gives good sweet-and-sour tension to the wine.”
