This wine, only produced 2 years in 10 in very limited quantity, has an intensely aromatic, lychee and raisin nose and offers a rich grape and dried apricot character on the palate. Early ripening varieties were left on the vine, and botrytis, also known as Noble Rot, helped to concentrate the sugars and provide complex aromas and flavours to the wine. This is still cool climate wine and does not have the stickiness of many late harvest wines; enjoy it with fruit desserts and cheeses. The Three Choirs Vineyard is south facing on sandy loam soil with a GDC trellis system with 800 vines per acre or 2000 per hectare. Most vines are 10-20 years old, all grapes are hand-picked.
