Villiera Rhine Riesling 1999

Due to ideal conditions prevailing in 1999 for a late harvested Rhine Riesling, we picked some of the fruit late with some botrytis influence. The result is a richn aromatic Rhine Riesling with exellent maturation potential. There is a richness on the nose with spicy and floral aromas. Made in a drier style than previous years.
