STEPHEN TANZER 91 POINTS - "Brassy orange. Smoky aromas of orange marmalade, apricot pit and botanical herbs. Very sweet, palate-coating pit fruit Read More...
flavors are complemented by licorice and singed orange, with a late note of candied red berries. Clings impressively on the finish, leaving intense smoke and spice notes behind. This thick, weighty wine should be served by itself as I suspect it would overwhelm all but the most decadent desserts."

WINERY NOTES - 1.7 tonnes/acre, 90% noble rot, 10% dessicated, ripe, yellow berries, a whole vineyard pick, for greatest site expression. From a maligned Marlborough vintage Read More...
for dry whites from late varieties, and rightly so: we waited for ripe flavours in the non-botrytis-affected fruit, while noble rot continued to advance, and eventually consigned ourselves to no dry Semillon this year. Our reward: the sun did eventually reemerge, the berries shrivelled beautifully, and we were gifted this unique wine, from a season the likes of which we'll probably never see again. Collected at 39 brix, whole bunch pressed, no enzymes or sulfur or fining "agents" added. Unsettled juice fermented with vineyard yeasts for 19 months, in 450L French hogsheads, 60% new. Bottled unfined, filtered, on the summer equinox, December 2009. 13.4% alcohol, pH 3.45, TA 6.7, RS 100g/l. Production: 150 dozen full bottles, 130 dozen half bottles. Luminous, viscous, deep-lighted gold. Heady musky/floral/spicy bouquet, multifaceted and complex: beeswax, lanolin, talcum powder, candied ginger, dried orange peel, verbena, citrus blossom, and a suggestion of vanilla bean. Lovely lift and floral sweetness, with an undercurrent of blossom honey and stony acidity; really fresh and pretty, light-footed and charming, for so concentrated and age-worthy a wine.

WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS - "Smooth and silky, rich and sweet, with fig and roasted pineapple flavors that pick up notes of clove and vanilla cream. The Read More...
finish lingers with polish. Drink now through 2020. 400 cases made."

Looking for a perfect dessert wine to go with apple or pumpkin pie?...Look no further! Made from one of the grapes typically used to make the famed, long-lived wines from Sauternes, Waterbrook picked their Semillon after a hard freeze in late November. The grapes are picked then pressed while still frozen. Much of the water (still frozen) stays with the pressed grapes, and the free flowing juice is highly concentrated with sugar. The wine naturally stops fermenting to higher alcohol levels, and what is left is concentrated, intense, and decadent. A ridiculous value, this wine just scored 92 points from Wine Spectator!
