Yarrawood Estate’s 2016 Tall Tales Botrytis Riesling was awarded the highly coveted Elite Gold Medal at the prestigious Canberra International Riesling Challenge, with an exceptional result of 96 out of 100 points. The wine was also voted top of its class within the challenge. A true testament to the team at Yarrawood Estate, this hued, golden riesling boasts aromatics of fresh cumquat and tangerine, and notes of blossom and nectar. The viscous, well-balanced palate displays mandarin, honeyed fig, marmalade, mixed spice, and maintains a firm acidity. The creation of a botrytis riesling is a rigorous process; it requires great aptitude, a watchful eye, plenty of patience, and nerves of steel! The team at Yarrawood Estate have truly excelled in the process to noteworthy acclaim.
