Marisa 2015


2015 ~ 375 ml
11% alc./vol.
Dessert Wine

Tasting Notes
The enticing aroma showcases the ripe peach, apricot, honey, tropical fruit, and ripe citrus notes. While the palate is delighted by sweet ripe white peaches and apricots, together with ripe mango and mandarin flavours. This is a rich dessert wine with an incredible luxurious balance and finish.

Winemaking Notes
Patiently dried using the traditional appassimento method (grapes were left to dry for 90 days after picking), 100% estate grown Riesling, handpicked, sorted, then slowly and gently pressed allowing adequate skin contact to develop elegant flavours and aromas. Slowly fermented in stainless steel then further aged on its lees before being prepared for bottling.

Food and Wine Pairing
Delicious on its own or as an aperitif with foie gras or duck liver pate. Pairs perfectly with dessert (the trick is to ensure the dessert wine is sweeter than the dessert) such as lemon meringue pie, and fruit pie or crumble (particularly peach pie or crumble).
