Altitude Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc 2018

$20.49

This small 375ml bottle packs a punch. Lifted aromatics of passionfruit, golden kiwifruit and honey. The palate begins sweet with savoury and nutty flavours coming through to finish with dry, bold citrus flavours. This delicious wine has complexity and the ability to age.

Notes

January 2018 was one of the hottest on record, followed by February which was one of the wettest. Warm nights led to low acids and an early harvest. At the end of harvest our winemaker visited a forgotten vineyard to find the remaining fruit had been infected with rare noble rot. An easy decision was made to create a delicious late harvest wine. The grapes were hand-picked, pressed and then the juice fermented and aged for 11 months in two seasoned French oak barrels.
