2009 Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc

GOLD MEDAL WINNER OF 2013 SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE WINE TASTING.

Late harvest wines have always captivated our imagination. When we purchased our property in Knights Valley in 1987, the existing Sauvignon blanc vineyard surprised us with an area that provided the necessary conditions for botrytis cinerea each harvest. This “noble rot” has allowed us to coax an amazingly complex wine from our tiny hillside vineyard. Once only produced for family and close friends, we can now share the fruit of our passion with you.

Appellation: Knights Valley
Brix at harvest: 31.3 degrees
Residual sugar: 6.88 gm/100 ml.
Alcohol: 14.8%
Aged in stainless steel barrels for 18 months.

TASTING NOTES

Wonderful flora aromas give way to flavors of pineapple, apricots, and citrus. Its clean, crisp finish and just the right amount of sweetness make this wine the perfect accompaniment to both sweet and savory food pairings. Try it with cheese or a simple fruit tart. It is excellent with spicy Asian dishes but can also be enjoyed alone after dinner.

Enjoy this wine cooled to between 50 and 55 degrees to enjoy its flavors fully. Colder temperatures will mute its complex flavors. Temperatures that are too warm will not allow you to experience its crispness.
