Tasting notes:
'Study in effortless harmony & complexity, 17's 190 g/l sweetness, pineapple & yellow stonefruit succulence neatly tucked in by almost impossibly precise acidity, while honey, citrus blossom & jasmine lift the tropical tones. First tasted since 14.' – Platters Wine Guide 2019, 5*

'Waxy apple, white peach, apricot, lime zest and floral perfume. The palate has a bright, zingy botrytis character and flavours of green apple, lime zest and honey. Exquisitely sweet, balanced, taut, crisp and long.' – Decanter World Wine Awards 2019, 96/100

'A very expressive nose, with apricot and pineapple aromas dominating. Soft cardamom pod fragrances and orange blossom are noticeable too. All these characteristics follow through onto the luscious, creamy palate which finishes clean.' – Winemaker

Great with desserts, but also great as a dessert on its own. Works well with cheese and is excellent with foie gras.

Viticulture:
Grapes are left on the vines to ripen and botrytis is allowed to flourish. Bunch sorting takes place in the vineyard to eliminate any traces of sour rot. Harvest took place from the 8th to the 11th of April. Grapes came in at 34° Brix.

Vinification:
A second stage of sorting occurs at the cellar to ensure that no sour rot is processed with the Botrytis infected grapes. Following skin contact, berries are pressed and juice settled at5° Celsius for two days. Fermentation is controlled at 14°-16 ° Celsius over a period of eight weeks.
