Complex aromas of dried apricot and citrus rind with hints of vanilla. The palate is rich and full, but is defined by a central core of fresh acidity. This balances the sweetness and layers of fresh fruit and lees allowing the wine to finish neatly with a lingering zing.' Alex Starey, Winemaker
Just 3500 half bottles made of this stunning sweet wine produced from exclusively estate grown fruit, and a true labour of love! This is not a botrytised wine, or a straw wine. Raisins are produced by pinching the stem of the grape bunches while they ripen on the vine which stops the translocation of fluids in and out of the grapes and allows them to dry naturally during the warm summer. The name comes from a beautiful spring on the farm near the Sauvignon blanc vineyard from which the grapes are sourced.
FROM THE PRESS
“It has a fabulous bouquet of irresistible scents of honey, apricot jam, mango and passion fruit, all beautifully defined. The palate is balanced with a fine bead of acidity that slices effortlessly though the marmalade and quince notes. This sweet wine exudes heavenly poise; it’s almost Sauternes-like on the finish. Another fabulous Fleurfontein. 97 points.”Neal Martin, Vinous
