Rudera Chenin Blanc Noble Late Harvest Auction Reserve 2006

The grapes were lightly crushed and the juice was allowed to settle overnight. New French barriques were filled and allowed to ferment with the natural yeast, using the indigenous microflora on the grapes. Fermentation took place in a 14?C cellar but actual fermentation temperatures were not monitored. Rudera Chenin Blanc Noble Late Harvest completed fermentation two months later and was sterile filtered before being bottled. 72 cases of this wine were sold at the 2006 CWG Auction. Tasting note: Distinct yellow hue; very rich honey bouquet. Amazingly full, scented nose with waxy, mouth-watering fruit salad and apples. Rich mouth-feel and layers of tropical flavours. The delicate yet firm smokey, oaky flavour expands in the mouth. Fairly sweet and full; lovely texture and good length.
