Sourced from the Giesen Alma St vineyard at Renwick, this decadent wine is made from fully botrytised fruit that was handpicked, crushed by foot and basket pressed then fermented in old French barriques.Concentrated aromas of fragrant nectarine, honeysuckle, passionfruit and a flinty minerality entice you to a massively intense, sweet palate full of fleshy, luscious tropical flavours and a bright, clean and persistent finish.
