Wine Review: This amber colored dessert wine from South Africa was one of our favorites from a recent blind tasting. It opens with an orange and red cherry bouquet with a hint of raisin. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, viscous and pleasantly sweet. The flavor profile is a mild ripe apricot with notes of honey. We also detected hints of nutmeg and plump golden raisin. The finish is pleasant, yet brief. The panel suggested pairing this gem with sweet bread pudding or warm apple turnovers. Enjoy – KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: This golden wine with fresh, sumptuous peach, dried apricot flavours, overlaid with a tropical lushness of melon and pineapple. Ripe sweetness, yet tangy, with sweet and sour zip flavours like baked apples with clove spice, wood spice and honey on the finish. Serve with fruit tarts, wild berries and ice cream, and full flavoured cheese.
