Gold color. Toasty, tropical aromas and flavors of golden raisin compote, white chocolate nut cookie, spiced apricot with honey butter, and cedar plank with a satiny, vibrant, sweet medium-to-full body and a seamless, complex, long finish with accents of banana and coconut cream pie and poached peach. A delicious, round and welcoming sweet wine that will be fantastic with cheeses and desserts.

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.
