Groot Constantia Weisser Riesling 2001

The South African Trophy Wine Show 2002 - Bronze
Typical Weisser Riesling spicy flavours on the nose, with a hint of honey, pineapple and nut, adding complexity. The crisp acid is beautifully balanced with a touch of sugar. Excellent with spicy dishes. The botrytis character makes this wine different, but very special.
Serving suggestion: Marinated lamb and fruit kebabs. Thai dishes. Mexican dishes, whole-wheat crepes filled with prawn and avocado pear.
