Lovely, elegant dessert wine. Retains enough acidity not to feel too cloying. Dangerously drinkable! Might be awesome over vanilla ice cream too. Or fruit pie. Oh my.

Peaches and lychee on the nose. Very fruity and syrupy. For someone who doesn't particularly like sweet wines, I really enjoyed this wine.

Winemaker Kareem Massoud harvests his select Sauvignon Blanc grapes late, to allow natural botrytis to form, then freezes them to further the concentration of flavors. The nose showed apricots, lychee & dried stone fruits. This wine is like nectar, showing dried fruit, mango citrus & creamy peach. It’s incredibly dense & complex with a finish that simply wouldn’t end.


Winemaker's Notes:

Made from carefully hand-harvested grapes affected by botrytis, the 'noble rot'.

Tasting Notes:

A slow, cool fermentation in new French oak barrels yielded intense and focused tropical fruit flavors like litchi, quince, pineapple, mango and guava. This wine is rich and sweet, and has ample acidity to balance the sugar, resulting in a sensational, full-bodied, dessert wine with a long finish. The oak embellishes the wine by imparting a subtle nutty flavor and by increasing complexity.

Made from carefully hand-harvested grapes affected by botrytis, the 'noble rot'.
