Yvonne’s pick . . .


Even if you were somehow blind to the bling on the label (gold medals for Africa here) you’d know as soon as you took your first sip of the Brown Brothers Patricia Noble King Valley riesling 2014 ($27) that it is astonishin­gly tasty. That’s because for starters, if its glistening, golden copper colour isn’t swoon-inducing enough, it’s also perfumed with tantalisin­g toffee, candied citrus, honeysuckl­e and a tweak of butterscot­ch. Named after Patricia Brown (the matriarch of the family), from grapes grown in a Milawa vineyard that’s been producing beautiful botrytis (the noble

“rot” that infects the berries) since the early 1960s, it’s a luscious, luxuriousl­y sweet treat that sings with coffee cream eclairs. regionalwi­nes.co.nz
