Platter's Wine Guide 2020: 4.5 stars

Mellifera Noble Late Harvest Riesling 2018, Jordan

£18.80 per bottle

About this wine

Jordan Mellifera Noble Late Harvest Riesling is named after the Cape Honey Bee, Apis Mellifera Capensis, and inspired by the owners’s son’s unfortunate experience with them during the sweet wine’s first press cycle.  The Mellifera is only made in years when botrytis, or a small amount thereof, is found on the grapes.  The 2018 vintage is delicate and floral with a ripe apricot and spring blossom bouquet and well-balanced acidity that adds elegance to the long, rich finish.

Food pairing: The perfect ending to a meal—pair with crème brûlée or a cheese selection.

So many dimensions possible, so true to its terroir and capable of producing wines through the full spectrum of sweetness, from steely dry to richly exotic. With notably high natural acidity Riesling has a firm backbone for extended ageing. Never married to oak, it is all about citrus notes, orange blossom, lime, lemon and conference pear. With time in bottle, tell-tale notes of kerosene start to appear on the nose."
