Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc Griva Vineyard 2009

Member Review by Nicole Ramsey:

Black and green olive, brine, and apricot on the nose. Thick, with heavy legs, and sweet with a briny edge. Very unique dessert wine. Intense, short finish. Light amber in color. Taste more apricot as it warms. Should not have left this one on the shelf so long, I would recommend drinking it soon after purchase, the olive notes have overdeveloped. The '08 is 33% cheaper than the '07, I might pick up a bottle of the late harvest sauvignon blanc if I were in the area.

Bernardus Winery & Vineyard:
The focus of Bernardus is to create wines that flatter the palate and stimulate the imagination. Our Marinus Estate Bordeaux-style red wine is the centerpiece of Ben Pon's dream. It is complemented by Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc from cool coastal climate vineyards. We also offer limited bottlings of small production and vineyard designate wines, which are available exclusively through the tasting room and wine club...taste a dream.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
