2012 Duckhorn Vineyards Knights Valley Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc 375ml
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: 76% Sauvignon Blanc, 24% Sémillon; Cooperage: 100% New French Oak, Château-style barrels (60 gallons)
This lovely late harvest wine displays enticing layered aromas of jasmine, honeysuckle, lychee, orange peel, vanilla bean and pineapple upside-down cake. On the palate, beautiful natural acidity adds length and dimension to the creamy mouthfeel, carrying the lush tropical flavors of guava and kiwi through to a long, lingering finish.
