Pure yellow gold in colour, the Fleurfontein 2018 exudes aromas of kiwifruit, dried apricot, and citrus with hints of hazelnut and vanilla. The palate is full and creamy with concentrated flavours of dried fruits and marzipan. A central core of acidity gives the wine a long, complex and focused succulent finish with a slightly salty touch.
To make this dessert wine, raisins are produced by pinching the stem of the grape bunches while they ripen on the vine. This stops the translocation of fluids into and out of the grapes and allows them to dry naturally during the warm summer. The raisins are harvested a few weeks later and the syrupy juice is squeezed from them with a hard pressing process. The syrup is fermented by indigenous yeast in Hungarian and French oak barrels and is left to mature for 18 months.
Drink now through to 2030.
