Saturn is a Late Harvest wine made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes specially selected and harvested in November. A delight now, imagine how this wine will develop even more complexity and richness over the years! The nose of this wine is pure enjoyment: a heady blend of fresh orange zest, mandarin orange, stewed pears and cinnamon.
The late-harvested grapes for this wine were hand-havested, in the very early morning of November 12th, 2014, when sugars, flavours, and acids were concentrated within each berry in order to produce this luscious late harvest wine. Following harvest each berry was gently pressed in order to release its precious nectar. After settling, the juice was fermented for a full 2 months in old, neutral French oak puncheons, and then aged on the lees until bottling. A pure expression of nature’s bounty.
This is a delicious partner to soft cheese, especially blue – or desserts.
