Made from 100% Estate Sauvignon Blanc grapes (and using grappa instead of brandy to fortify the wine), this White Port-style wine is now Mira’s absolute favourite, and to be honest, one of my candidates for my top 10 wines of the year at this point. Rich and soft, but fresh and well balanced, this is velvet in a glass. On the nose, aromas of apricot, white peach, vanilla bean, caramel, toasty spices and marshmallow, this very versatile “dessert” wine is near the top of my list for outstanding delivery of aromas. On the palate, the soft and creamy texture welcomes you with a suave and sexy approach of peach, candied apricot and ripe cantaloupe, followed by orange peel and citrus zest, then honey, with a spectacular finish of caramel apple and butterscotch. This white fortified wine has beautifully balanced acidity and sweetness and a delicious taste of toasted nuts. This wine is extremely sexy and delicious, don’t miss out 😊. (CWC, Sept 20, 2023).
