2007 Late Harvest Shahpar

This rare and extremely limited wine is made only when nature’s good fortune allows the harvesting of grapes affected with Botrytis Cineria (Noble Rot). The 2006 vintage was noted for its long and mild growing conditions which gently encourage the Noble Rot to thrive, allowing the low-yield, dehydrated fruit to develop an exquisite honeyed-apricot flavor profile.

Tasting Notes:

The 2006 Shahpar is introduced by sweet scents of honeysuckle, jasmine and orange blossom. A viscous mouthfeel reveals flavors of apricot, crème brulee, and marmalade with well-integrated nuances of vanilla and hazelnut. Shahpar delights the senses in its youth, yet ages gracefully for decades.
