2012 Clarendelle by Haut Brion Bordeaux Amberwine

An amazing rarity in New Zealand, this is 500ml of gorgeous Sauternes-like quality and decadence, for a very un-Sauternes like price!

Description

From the house of Clarence Dillon, Clarendelle is overseen by Prince Robert of Luxembourg. This Amber Wine is a blend of 80% Semillon and 20% Muscadelle, handpicked botrytised grapes off a clay hillside near the town of Monbazillac. Essence of blossom and honey with peach, apricot and honey.

Smells

Candied peach and apricot, baked apple, and a lovely backbone of honeysuckle and beeswax waft from the glass. Decadence at its finest.

Tastes

Bright and lifted, it has a decidedly ripe acidity which perfectly balances out with rich toffee apple and baked fruit flavours. Drink this like the French do, and instead of having it with your dessert after dinner, chill it down and serve as an apertif alongside a cheese platter. You'll wish you thought of it sooner!
