Peregrine Charcoal Creek Riesling 2008: Beware it's a late harvest style!

This wine has a light golden hue, and I picked up raisin and honey to the nose.

This is quite a thick and sweet style Riesling oozing with Stone fruit flavours, so much so I would go as far to say it is more akin to a Dessert Wine than a standard Riesling.  Having just written that I checked the bottle and on the back it actually says "Late Harvest"; why couldn't they put it on the front of the bottle!

The wine is nicely balanced, elegant, has a very long finish and is lovely to drink. Being a late harvest it was however a poor match for our meal this evening, or as Jane said, it was more of a miss than a match.
