Mondillo Nina 2018

$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 2018 vintage contains 60% botrytis affected fruit after a warm spring, followed by the hottest January on record which meant we had to wait for the cooler weather to arrive before botrytis set in and the fruit was ready to be picked - May  8th.  Only a small amount of Nina will be available from this vintage, just 960 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 2022

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

Already a delicious mouthful, the 2018 vintage was made from hand-picked, late-harvested Riesling. Beautifully perfumed, it has notable depth of vibrant, citrusy, peachy, slightly honeyed flavours, a hint of apricot, and a finely poised, sweet (126 grams/litre residual sugar), very rich finish. Well worth discovering. www.michaelcooper.co.nz
