Twelve 375ml Bottles of The Brothers Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc 2014
This absolute beauty is our multi award-winning dessert wine, having won 25 gold medals and 14 trophies over the last three vintages. Our Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc is hand picked from a single vineyard and grape-stomped the traditional way, delivering a beautiful highly concentrated wine worthy of the accolades it has been awarded.
We source the Sauvignon Blanc fruit for this wine from our Alma St Vineyard in the Wairau Valley, Marlborough. The vineyard is netted to protect it, which allows the grapes to hang on the vine for longer. Eventually the fruit shrivels which gives the concentrated sugars late harvest wines are known for. This is when the fruit is ready for hand picking, normally late May.
Grape-stomping is part of the method of maceration used in traditional winemaking. Rather than using a wine press, grapes are crushed by having barefoot participants repeatedly stomp on them in vats to release their juices and begin fermentation. Our cellar team love making this wine - it's a fun day stomping on the grapes!
Our Brothers Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of passionfruit, guava and honeysuckle with a luscious, concentrated palate exuding vibrant tropical fruit flavours. A must-try wine.
Also available as a single bottle purchase from an online retailer here in NZ.
