Wrights Gisborne Late Harvest Semillon 2015

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 03-Feb-2016
Bright golden-yellow colour with some depth, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is tightly concentrated with deep aromas of decadently ripe tropical fruits and yellow stonefruits melded with honey and nuances of yellow capsicums and subtle hints of herbs. Very sweet to taste and light-bodied, the palate features a concentrated core with stylishly rich and luscious flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits, tropical fruits, honey and lantana. The mouthfeel is smooth and unctuous in texture with a fine line of acidity providing balance, freshness and delicate cut, guiding the palate to a rich luscious and opulent finish of tropical fruits and herbs. This is a stylishly rich and near-opulent Late Harvest Semillon with flavours of tropical fruits and subtle herbal nuances. Serve with fruit and baked desserts over the next 4-5+ years. Three picks of botrytised fruit from the ‘Terrace’ vineyard from vines planted in 2007, harvested at 36 ° Brix, fermented in tank to 8.5% alc. and 220 g/L RS. Certified AsureQuality organic. (375 ml) 18.0/20 Feb 2016 RRP $30.00
