2012 Tangent Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc

 / 375ml
Tasting notes
Specs

A great wine to accompany cheese and pâté, dessert or spicy food with a perfect balance of sweetness and acidity and intense notes of honeyed apricot, butterscotch and marmalade, plus hints of saffron spice. We harvested the Sauvignon Blanc grapes used in this wine over a month later than our regular harvest so that they almost resembled golden raisins. We have bottle-aged this wine for you so it is ready for drinking now and will keep for many years to come due to the high sugar and alcohol content.

Vintage Outlook

The Art of Making Our Wine

Throughout the millenia for which winemaking has existed, the humble grape has always been the star of the show. Its journey from a simple fruit to a complex, beautiful wine, is tastfully shepherded by the winemaker, asserting themself into the natural process while being mindful not to overly interfere with the wonder that is fermentation.
