Patience Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc
Our Late Harvest, made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes, is a luxurious treat, perfect for sipping on its own or paired with decadent desserts like crème brûlée, panna cotta, or fruit tarts. It's also a wonderful accompaniment to blue cheese or foie gras.
Harvesting this wine occurs in the middle of winter, on a frosty morning. As Autumn progresses, the once juicy and green Sauvignon Blanc berries start to become golden and rapidly lose their water. Concentration occurs as botrytis sets in and we see the sugar levels rise. The 'almost-raisin' berries are gently hand-harvested by the entire team together to celebrate the long wait for this precious wine.
The wine is then fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature to preserve the delicate flavors of the Sauvignon Blanc grapes. After fermentation, the wine is aged for a minimum of six months in oak barrels, which adds complexity and depth to the flavor profile.
