2017 Mount Riley 'Captain's Mistress' Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc
Our Limited Release range is made in small amounts and sold through fine wine stores, restaurants and our cellar door.
A fantastic growing season with warm mid-summer temperatures enabled perfect flavor development for this opulent wine. Late season heavy dews created enough moisture for the development of noble rot while the warm clear days allowed the fruit to dehydrate effortlessly.
The fruit was hand harvested in mid-May, de-stemmed, crushed and fermented at cool temperatures for several weeks. The ferments were monitored carefully to achieve a perfect balance between the sugar and acid to make this wine deliciously moreish.
