Principal varietal(s): Sauternes blend

Scrumptious young Sauternes with a superb balance of deep fruit flavors and balancing acidity. Overflows with citrus-blossom honey, pineapple, orange marmalade, dark caramel, and saffron flavors. Extremely rich without being overly unctuous or heavy or alcoholic in feel. Sensational dessert wine that can actually complement rather than overwhelm the food. - HK 2011-03-22
