The grapes for this wine were harvested from the Ehrhardt block of the Herzog Vineyard. This two acre block of Chenin Blanc grapes are unique for three reasons. First, it receives the utmost care and maintenance throughout the year, especially during harvest. Second, the grapes in this block were allowed to ripen to the fullest extent, thereby maximizing sweetness. And third, theses grapes were harvested very late in the season to provide a uniquely luscious Late Harvest wine characteristic.
This wine displays mouthwatering honey and apricot aromas and is perfectly balanced. Since the wine is naturally quite sweet, it is best enjoyed with full flavored desserts, pâté, and fresh fruit or as an aperitif.
