2008 Huge Bear Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc

2008 Huge Bear Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc

 The Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc fruit comes from our Knights Bridge Vineyard. This unique wine is created when ‘Noble Rot’ (Botrytis Cinerea) grows on grape clusters late in the season. This rare event causes wines to be rich and sweet, but still retain bright acidity and exceptional complexity.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Vibrant gold color, the nose features bright apricot, hazelnut, honey and orange blossom. The flavors are bold and focused and mirror the nose. Balanced acidity is present throughout, building to a lingering and lengthy finish.
Winemaker Notes
Fermentation was conducted in neutral French oak barrels for texture and just a suspicion of spice on the nose. In barrel the wine gained complexity, richness and texture from contact with the yeast lees.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs perfectly with cider braised pork belly with roasted apples, mustard caviar and hazelnut cream. For an elegant finish to dinner, enjoy with artisan blue cheese and apricots.
