2012 Vina Echeverria Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc, Molina, Chile HALVES
Golden yellow. Complex nose with clear overtones of mature peaches, apricots and honey, with a delicate background of botrytis. Marked notes of quince jam and creamy honeyed flavors are enlivened by a good level of acidity. Rich, intense and full bodied, with a long and elegant finish where fruits and botrytis express their identity in full harmony.
Sauvignon Blanc estate single vineyard grapes, from ungrafted selected clones of pre-phylloxera French rootstock. This exquisitely sweet, golden wine is rare and valuable, since it is only produced during vintages when Botrytis cinerea, or “noble rot,” occurs naturally on the grapes.
