Airfield Estates 2010 Runway Late Harvest Riesling (375mL)
100% Riesling | Alc: 11.6% – Sweet
Yakima Valley, Washington
Airfield Estates 2010 Runway Late Harvest Riesling is bright, medium gold, with an aromatic bouquet of candied white peach and sweetened grapefruit. Rich, creamy, and delectably sweet with flavors of apricot.
“The 2010 Runway Late Harvest Riesling was made with 50-60% botrytis infected fruit and finished with 15% residual sugar. Peaches, tropical fruits, honey, and botrytis aromas lead to a viscous, vibrant wine with superb natural acidity that frames the fruit brilliantly. This wine is all about pleasure; how long it will last is difficult to say but there is no rational reason to defer your gratification. By the way, it is also an outstanding value in sweet dessert wine.” 92 Points – Wine Advocate
It’s all about the “noble rot” (d’Yquem fans take note!) – botrytis grapes make this all peaches, fruits and honey.
A steal at the price, a really nice desert wine you can bring to a dinner party or swig it yourself.
