About The Wine
Named after the winemaker’s second daughter, only 1,000 bottles of this never to-be-repeated Noble Late Harvest were produced. Picked late in April, each bunch of Sauvignon Blanc was hand-selected with a minimum of 50% Botrytis covering the grapes. After whole-bunch pressing, the juice was barrel-fermented and matured for 28 months in 30% new French oak.
Upfront passion-fruit, marmalade and honey on the nose, followed by lovely purity of fruit on the palate and a not-overly-sweet finish, balanced well by bright acidity. Pairs brilliantly with foie gras or French cheese.
John Platter Wine Guide 4.5 Stars: “Wooded Noble Late Harvest dessert from Elgin Sauvignon Blanc, once-off production thanks to conducive conditions for botrytis in 2013. Subtly sweet rather than unctuous, perfectly balanced by tense acidity. Apricot, marzipan and lime deliciousness tempt the next sip.”
