Brown brick red color. Fruity, minty aromas of mincemeat pie, vanilla peppermint bark, and cashew nougat with a supple, moderately sweet medium body and a seamless, refreshing, medium-length goji berry and craisin, eucalyptus honeycomb, nut skin, and pepper dust finish with dusty, fine tannins and light oak flavor. A nice mature red dessert wine for cheeses and sweets.

Late Harvest

Wine Glass Dessert.jpg
Serve in a Copita
Late harvest refers to a sweet dessert wine produced from grapes picked at a later date than normal, anywhere from a week to several months. While this can refer to any type of wine, it is generally used to describe white wines such as Riesling or Gewurztraminer that are harvested late to acquire extra natural sugar, resulting in a sweeter wine. These sweeter wines are often golden or deep yellow in color with flavors of honey, caramel and ripe apricot; these are to be served with desserts such as almond or pear tart or with foie gras or blue cheeses.
