The 2011 Bong Bong Late Harvest is a blend of Riesling, Chardonnay, and Pinot Grigio. The Riesling and Chardonnay were left to hang on the vines as long as possible. The weather was cool and dry and we managed to delay picking until 4 weeks after normal picking time. Heightened fruit flavour complexity and increased sugar levels allowed us to produce this classic “late harvest” style.
There are lovely fresh floral aromas with lime and lemon blossom, and a touch of honey. The palate is soft and gentle with flavours of lemon and honey. An off-dry finish is balanced with our signature “cool climate” natural acidity.
This wine is very easy drinking, and because of its lower alcohol it makes an ideal luncheon wine.
Drink now to 2014.
