Wine Tasting Notes
Bouche d'Or, or Taste of Gold, refers to the amber color and luscious, sweet essence of this wine. You may know that the characteristic honey-apricot fragrance, found in many late harvest wines, comes from whats known as the noble rot, or botrytis cinerea, which occurs naturally on grape clusters. We delayed harvesting one acre of our estate vineyard Chardonnay grapes until December, anticipating that the botrytis would further concentrate the grape sugars. The resulting wine, seasoned with a touch of aromatic Riesling, recalls to mind honeyed apricots and ripe figs, yet is delicate in weight and smooth in texture.
