Gorgeous South African dessert wine - a dead ringer for Sauternes!

FWDC 93/100

Description

A noble rot sweet wine from Eilandia, between the towns of Robertson and Worcester towards the interior of the Western Cape, South Africa. The average high in summer is 31.5 degrees celsius and the average rainfall an arid 200mm a year, which suits the 40-year-old vine Chenin Blanc vines nicely for a long hang time. The result is an amazingly luscious sweet wine, filled with pineapple, tree fruits, honey and ginger spice. With 108 grams of residual sugar and no yeast added other than natural wild yeasts, this is an incredibly complex and world-class sweet wine that is a real treat for Kiwi wine drinkers.
