Wine Enthusiast ReviewThe warm vintage rewarded this dessert wine, yielding incredibly ripe fruit. Barrelfermented, this blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc was picked at 35% of sugar, and has a residual sweetness of 12.1 grams. The wine is tremendous in apricot jam, pineapple tart, vanilla custard and crme brulee flavors, with gorgeously balancing, clean acids and a rich, honeyed finish.Wine Tasting NotesA blend of Semillion and Sauvignon Blanc grapes from Beringers Bale Lane Vineyard makes for a beautiful lush and jammy apricot and vanilla flavors. It is sweet and tasty, perfect for dessert.
