Late in the 2016 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 concentrated berries.
This dessert wine offers tropical fruit aromas of lychee, passionfruit, guava, and fresh herbs. The palate has luscious tropical fruit flavours and textures, yet has a pleasing acid structure 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 2021.
