SOUTH AFRICA : ELGIN
FULL-BODIED, HONEY, TANGERINE, CANDIED CITRUS, PINEAPPLE, OAK
Late-ripening Viognier bunches are left on the vine in the cool of autumn and subjected to morning mists from two bodies of water, thereby creating the perfect conditions for noble rot to develop …. and, to ultimately bless us with this gorgeous, layered dessert wine from South Africa. Tangy and quite sweet, but not at all cloying.
