Bottle Description

This wine has been made using a centuries-old process of drying grapes on straw in order to produce dessert style wines. Grapes are harvested at the same ripeness required to make table wine and are then laid out on straw for a number of weeks. This allows the grapes to slowly dehydrate, concentrating their natural sugar, acid and flavour. The straw also acts as a wick for any excess moisture, ensuring the grapes do not rot. After gently pressing the dehydrated grapes the concentrated juice is slowly fermented and aged in old oak barrels to create a balanced luscious dessert wine. TASTING: Luscious raisin, honey and green mango fruit on the nose and palate with a wonderfully refreshing sugar and acid balance make this a wine to be enjoyed on its own and with both sweet and savoury desserts.
DECANTER 5 Star Rating 2013 & Gold Medal: "Wow! Peaches and cream, milk chocolate and white flowers. The wine is fantastic balanced with complimenting fruit, acidity and developing botrytis characters. Very fine indeed."
