Description

Like all Pegasus Bay wines, Encore is named after Donaldson family matriarch Christine Donaldson's love and patronage of opera. Encore is a Noble style with heavily botrytised fruit fermented to 11% alcohol and 163 grams residual sugar. Lusciously sweet and honeyed with exotic tropical fruits, apricots and coconuts, Encore is a benchmark sweet wine that goes with fruit-based desserts or with any cheeseboard after dinner.

Smells

Intense aromas of rock melon, mango, pineapple, apricots and honey. Tastes Luscious, sticky and rich. Big big big tropical fruit and marmlade. Viscous, but finishing with vibrant acidity and a touch of minerality to keep it from being cloying. Utterly delectable! Drink now, or cellar until 2026, with Tarte Tartin.
