Product Description

Dessert Wine. A golden-hued bright straw yellow colour. On the nose, there are aromas of citrus, candied apricots, and quince intermingle with subtle notes of white flowers and nuts. The palate is smooth with sufficient acidity to impart freshness that runs through to its persistent finish. An elegant and subtle wine.

Background: The grapes that go into the 2012 Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc come from vines planted in 1992 at the La Escultura Vineyard, which has sandy-loam soils with a high percentage of stones, which results in low vigour potential in the vineyard. The property is located in the Casablanca Valley, just a short distance from the Pacific Ocean, which provides a coastal influence that moderates temperatures during the ripening period. The cool ocean breezes allow the grapes to ripen evenly and gradually, which helps conserve the aromas and flavours in the grapes and ensures good acidity levels.
