Late in the 2013 growing season, the cordons (arms) of our estate-grown Sauvignon Blanc vines were cut to promote dehydration and concentration of sugars and flavours. The weather was kind, allowing the fruit to shrivel up producing very rich, concentrated berries. Only 2900 bottles were made.
This dessert wine offers tropical fruit aromas of passionfruit, guava, and some fresh herbs. The palate has luscious tropical fruit flavours and textures, yet has a pleasant and crispness and drinkability, avoiding the heaviness and sweetness of richer dessert wines.
Beautifully balanced, fresh and luscious, and with great length of flavour.
Great with fruit based desserts. Drink now to 2018.
