Previous Vintages: 2009
This wine is made in the Sauternes style. It is a blend of completely botryised Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes. It has intense honeysuckle and apricot aromas, rich and mouth-filling, vibrant flavors of honeydew and peaches with a brilliant, deep gold color.
This late harvest wine is made from ripe grapes affected by the beneficial mold known as Botrytis cinerea, a mold known as the "noble rot" that shrivels the grapes and thus reduces their water content. The remaining juice is especially rich in sugar and when fermented into wine, retains a much higher than usual percentage of residual sugar.
