Intensely aromatic with tropical fruit, pears and marmalade characters typical of ripe Sauvignon Blanc. The palate emits lusciousness and concentration of fruit yet is refreshing and vibrant due to the presence of natural Central Otago acidity.

Lake Hayes wines reflect the land they’re grown on, with a style of winemaking that allows the fruit to express itself every vintage.

STYLE
This dessert wine is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes. While it is sweet, the natural acidity balances the sugar to leave a vibrant and refreshing mouthfeel.

GROWING SEASON
The growing season was back to the mean after 2018’s unprecedented heat. Numerous cold snaps during harvest meant there was a need for diligent frost fighting at day break. These grapes were left to be picked late in the season to accumulate sugar concentration and obtain a portion of Noble rot (botrytis).

WINEMAKING
After hand picking, select bunches were pressed in our bag press over a number of hours. The very sweet juice was then transferred to a stainless steel tank for fermentation.

MATURATION
Aged on light lees for six months in stainless steel.
