Late Harvest Shahpar

2007 Late Harvest Shahpar

This rare wine is made only when nature’s good fortune allows the harvesting of grapes affected with Botrytis Cineria (Noble Rot). The long hang time on the vine gently encourages the Noble Rot to thrive, allowing the low-yield, dehydrated fruit to develop an exquisite honeyed-apricot flavor profile.

Tasting notes

A greater percentage of Semillon brings highly perfumed aromas of honeysuckle, dried apricot, orange peel and fresh peaches to our 2007 Shahpar.

Viscous but never cloying, the sleek, richly-textured palate delivers sweet flavors of dried fruit, honey, glazed citrus and marmalade with notes of hazel and macadamia nuts. This is a luxurious wine, one to be enjoyed in its youth or in the coming years as it gains mellow complexity with age.
