Pegasus Bay Finale Waipara Noble Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2019 $42

Only made when the gods of noble rot feel so inclined to touch the vines with their fungal fingers, this dangerously delicious dessert wine is all kinds of evil on the sweet sensation front. Awash with toffee apple, candied citrus, dried mango and acres of honeysuckle and mandarin magic, at 164g/l residual natural sugar, it’s lusciously refreshing, but definitely make sure you’ve been to the dentist before indulging – because this botrytised-baby will have those pesky cavities hollering loudly! The sauvignon blanc and the semillon were fermented and matured in 50% new French oak separately for 12 months prior to blending and bottling. Outstanding.
