Z ‘Xave’ Barossa Valley Late Harvest 2015

Sweet Wine from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 27-Dec-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose has well-concentrated and deeply complex aromas of fresh, waxy, lanolin fruit along with pure lime fruit notes and suggestions of honey, unveiling a little toasty detail. Medium-sweet to sweet in taste, and light-bodied, the palate has a softly concentrated core with flavours of wax and lanolin, herbs, lime, florals and honey. The mouthfeel is gently rich with subtle unctuous notes and a delicate phenolic-textured line, with balanced, fresh acidity. The wine flows along a fine line, leading to a long and sustained finish of herbs, honey and lime. This is a sweet late-harvest wine with softly rich lanolin, herb and honied flavours on a gently concentrated palate with a soft unctuousness and fresh, balancing acidity. Serve as an aperitif and with fruit desserts over the next 4+ years. A blend of late-picked 51% Semillon and 49% old vine Riesling, with no botrytis, fermented to 10.5% alc. and 55 g/L RS. 197 dozen made. 18.0-/20 Nov 2017 RRP AUS$20.00
