An Alsatian-style late harvest wine exhibiting the apricots and honey flavors of botrytised fruit. This wine is rich, and full-bodied with delicately balanced sugar and acid. Though a late harvest style, this wine is a beautiful accompaniment with food. Appropriate foods: Lobster, or dishes with a heavy cream sauce, fresh fruit, desserts, and Swiss and sharp Cheddar cheese.

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.
