Wine Review: This goldenrod colored sticky from down-under opens with a green tea bouquet with hints of figs and apricot. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, rich, and smooth. The flavor profile is a plump golden raisin with hints of apple jelly and apricot. The finish remains sweet and is subtle. The panel suggested that this tasty dessert wine would pair well with rum cake or bread pudding. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: There is a beautiful lemon butter character on the nose with a range of fruits including gooseberry, cumquat, green apple and mixed peel in the background. The palate is thick and luscious with a wonderful silky texture. The lemon butter character is even more dominant on the palate with a deeper layer of green mango, and hints of limecello. It’s wonderfully complex and indulgent with a subtle edge. This will be a very fun wine to match with a range of desserts, especially something with a citrus component such as a lemon and lime tart.
