Crafted in the traditional Spätlese style, the Late Harvest presents yet another approach to this classic variety. Additional time on the vine allows the grapes to fully develop their flavor profiles. The later picking also helps sugars to consolidate, resulting in a sweeter full bodied wine. An appropriate level of alcohol helps to make this wine delicate and approachable with a moderate level of residual sweetness. Honeyed citrus and green apple accent the nose, while peach and apricot float across the tongue.
