Grava Martinborough Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 10-Nov-2018
Deep, light golden-yellow colour, a little lighter on the edge. This has a full, decadent and opulent nose with deeply concentrated aromas of ripe tropical fruit and subtle lantana notes, overlaid by aromas of honey, lime marmalade and musky botrytis. Very sweet to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has rich and luscious flavours of tropical fruits, lantana and subtle notes of green stonefruits unfolding lime marmalade, honey and musk. This is opulent and the mouthfeel features a gentle unctuousness, with good acid cut providing balance. The wine flows smoothly to a soft, lingering finish of honey and musky marmalade. This is a decadent Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of tropical fruits, honey, lime marmalade and a layering of musky botrytis. Serve with fruit desserts over the next 4 years. Botrytised Sauvignon Blanc, foot-stomped and given overnight soaking then fermented in tank to 10.5% alc. and 160 g/L RS. (375 ml) 18.5/20 Nov 2018 RRP $32.00
