Made from 100% hand-harvested Semillon grapes affected by noble rot, fermented in stainless steel to capture the essence of the grapes and matured in oak barrique to add complexity. This is a concentrated, luscious dessert wine showing intense flavours of caramelized fruits, pear, melon and almond, all balanced by good acidity.
