1 x Case (6 bottles) of Lothian Vineyards Noble Late Harvest
On the nose a smoky wild honey gives way to tangerine and musk melon.
The taste is characterised by tangy acidity that lasts to the very end, never letting the sweetness become cloying.
The first impression are of grilled pineapple drizzled with lemon and honey. As one gets used to these flavours, secondary notes of Frangipane paste, golden sultanas, Ruby grapefruit topped with brown sugar and grilled start to appear. The final impression is of a Christmas mince pie with a glass of Drambuie. Notes of crisp buttery pastry and candied citrus peel supported to the end by a racy acidity.
The wine would pair well with strong cheeses both soft and hard, roasted nuts, dried fruit and even a not-too-sweet cheesecake.
