Gorgeous late picked dessert wine and "sensational value for money" Winsor Dobbin. Organic Producer.
17 points Jancis Robinson and featured in her "Tip-top whites and fortifieds" December 2014.
The sweet wines of Jurançon are among the great sweet / dessert wines of the world and great value for money. This is an excellent example- luscious fruit complex, balance, length and not too sweet on the finish.
Region / Terroir: Jurançon
Grapes: This wine uses 60% Gros Manseng and 40% Petit Manseng.
Winemaking techniques: The wines are not botrytised, in fact it is said that the thick skin of the manseng grapes protects against rot. A long dry autumn allows the wines to dry on the vine and concentrate flavors. Fermentation and vinification occurs in oak barrels for the Petit Manseng, which gives an added complexity. The Gros Manseng is fermented and vinified in stainless steel.
Our tasting notes: Shiny gold / yellow color. On the complex nose citrus and peach tones. The balance is excellent, complex citrus and stone fruits. Melleux means sweet but unlike many dessert wines from Australia this wine has a drier finish. They can be consumed on their own (with an aperitif) with pate, cheeses and it is absolutely delicious with fruit desserts.
Alcohol : 12.5%
Reviews: One star in the Hachette's Guide 2018 here is our translation: "Three months in small barrels and six months in large barrels, this dessert has a subtle nose with scents of flowers, peach, bananas, honey, quince and spices. Alive in the mouth opening to an ample and balanced palate with good acid. "
