The Vintage

2011 got off to a late start with a cool and wet spring. A surprise rain in our typically dry June was followed by a more seasonable, but cooler summer. We were delighted by a very warm and dry September. October was a roller-coaster with some rains early on and then, thankfully, dry and warm north winds provided the finishing touch for the later varieties. Crop yield was noticeably smaller.

The Wine

A flamboyantly perfumed wine with luscious flavors of honey, peach, apricot and orange blossoms. The ample residual sugar leads to a voluptuously sweet and rich mouthfeel.

Food Affinities

Serve alongside poached pears, creamy cheesecake, lemon-hazelnut semifreddo or with blue cheese and walnuts for a savory option.
