The sweet wine season is not yet over, even though the Alsace one has begun.
It’s not been long that we’ve had New Zealand’s generally excellent sweet wines available in the UK. For a good while they were kept out by some EU legislation. Here’s a brilliant one.
Trinity Hill Noble Viognier 2008 Gimblett Gravels, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
12% alcohol. Beautiful: richly textured, rich and smooth with lovely grape, melon, pear and apricot characters. Lush and intense with sweetness. Pure and textured with some lychee notes, and some spiciness on the finish. Beautiful balance. 93/100
