Tasting Notes: The tasting story ~ It’s just one day before the wedding, and we are all chipping in. You are chopping pears, while I roll the dough out on the old stone counter. It’s cool inside the old log cabin, but we can hear the cousins shouting and orchestrating the setup of chairs outside. The slab floor creaks as we come together over the old steel pie pan, add the vanilla and sugar, assemble, and slam the door of the cast iron oven shut. You playfully throw a little flour at me, and with a laugh, we get to the next pie.
Colour: Deep lemon

Food Pairing Notes: Nuts, dried fruit, cheese plates and creme brulée.
Production Notes: Late Harvest – starting in 1986, winemaker, Ann Sperling has had a fascination with Late harvest and botrytis affected wines. The concentration, and texture of late harvested wine sets an exciting challenge to make a harmonious and refreshing wine in spite of the obvious intensity. Ideally mature grapes are harvested at 30 brix depending on the season and selection. Acidity is key, so harvest parameters include target acidity of 10 g/L.
Residual Sugar: 80 g/L
