Longview Epitome Late Harvest Riesling is the world’s most important and influential Wine Shows — Decanter World Wine Awards and International Wine Challenge have each awarded Longview’s 2013 ‘Epitome’ Late Harvest Riesling two trophies!
Beautifully expressive aromas of orange blossom, marmalade, with a ripe citrus undertone and just a hint of kerosene and mushroom. The palate bursts with ginger, treacle and a lovely, complex floral character, with the sweetness lifted by a rich vein of zippy acidity. Superb.
