2005 Gold - Late Harvest Wine Details
Price: $50.00 per bottle

Description: Select Harvest Botrytis. Dessert Wine, Sauvignon Blanc. Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards, Los Alamos Valley. Gold is a unique wine. Under rare and ideal conditions Botrytis Cyneria mold grows on the grapes late in the season, engulfing the clusters and concentrating the sugars. We stop the fermentation before the wine becomes dry, retaining natural sugars, and a distinct flavor from the Botrytis. The combination is a unique taste experience unlike anything else in nature. As Gold is poured, your senses are tantalized by its golden hue. The nose fills your head with lush aromas of ripe apricots, dried peaches and tropical flowers. The taste is exotic, sweet but not cloying; it’s like dried apricots over Cream Brulée, rich and sumptuous.
