2011 Duckhorn Vineyards Knights Valley Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc
This rare and enticing Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc was made using fruit from a storied single vineyard in Sonoma County’s Knights Valley. Left to patiently ripen for an extra month, these grapes produced a rich, concentrated wine with alluring tropical aromas, pure sweet peach flavors and balancing acidity. To add complexity, it was aged on the lees for ten months in new oak.
Varietal Content: 99% Sauvignon Blanc, 1% Sémillon; Cooperage: 100% New French Oak, Château-style barrels
This lush, concentrated late harvest wine has aromas of candied tangerine, amaretto, orange peel, honeysuckle and lemon meringue. On the palate, sweet peach and stone fruit elements are underscored by marmalade, citrus and apricot flavors, as well as a rich hint of caramel apple.
