2012 18 CARAT PINOT GRIS

Succulent and honeyed, this botrytised dessert wine exhibits orange blossom, dried apricot and ripe pear and spice flavours with a long clean finish.

Food Matching: Perfect with desserts and foie gras, but also with cheeses or as an aperitif.
Alcohol: 10.5%
Acidity: 9.5g/L
Residual Sugar: 145 g/L.
