Made from Semillon grapes that have their canes cut when the flavor is ripe and are then left to slowly dehydrate on the vine. The result is a powerful, seductive dessert wine of great pleasure.
Aroma: Powerful aromas of honeysuckle with hints of tropical fruit
Taste: A luscious rich palate with hints of honey and spice and a meld of concentrated dried tropical fruit flavors. The finish is clean, fresh and persistent.
"The Sauternes-like sweet white, the 2005 Semillon Cane Cut For Love or Money (which was aged in 100% new French oak), possesses 263 grams of residual sugar. This medium gold-colored, honeyed offering displays plenty of caramel, tropical fruit, and creme brulee-like characteristics. A dead-ringer for a top-notch Sauternes, it can be drunk now, but promises to last for 10-15 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright gold. Pure, mineral-driven aromas of apricot, peach and rose pastille, with subtle mineral tones. Lush and extremely sweet, yet the ripe orchard fruit flavors show lovely precision and freshness. Finishes on a bright pear note, with a hint of jasmine. Serve this by itself."
