A generous 35% Appassimento Riesling juice brings texture, depth and complexity to this wine. I mean a lot of complexity. I tasted this wine over a three-day period (like I usually do for most wines I review), and the Sussreserve changed and improved so much over that period, which gets me very excited for the long run. On the nose, primary aromas of lemon, green apple, white flowers like jasmine and chamomile, grapefruit, apricot and honeysuckle. The palate is rich, but not syrupy, concentrated but not overloaded. There’s a nice progression of flavours from green apple to grapefruit, from peach to apricot. This Gold medal wine finishes on a great stony mineral note and lingers for a long time. The high acid level balances very well with the 38grams of residual sugar and the low 9% ABV brings a light and vibrant aspect. Very well done! (CWC, 08/06/23).
