La Playa Reserve Range Late Harvest 2016
The early morning cool damp misty conditions by the Rapel river create botrytis on the Sauvignon grapes and when picked late have high levels of sugar very similar to Sauternes. The aroma is given added perfume by the addition of late picked Viognier and the palate offers ripe citrus, melon, pineapple, candied ginger, honey, quince, nutmeg and butterscotch flavours. It is richly sweet yet beautifully balanced with lingering fresh acidity.
