2014 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 cinerea, or noble rot. The white grapes destined for this wine were still on the vine in mid-November, slowly dehydrating and accumulating the noble rot essential for achieving its exquisitely rich honey and apricot profile.

Tasting Notes

Juicy flavors of fresh apricot, honeysuckle, and mandarin are on full display in this elegant and harmonious Late Harvest blend.

The wine’s delicate sweetness is finely balanced with vivacious citrus fruits—lemon curd and tangerine mixed with candied ginger. Subtle notes of toasted coconut and Tahitian vanilla bean complement the silky texture, creating a mouthfeel that is almost weightless. 2014 Shahpar is a sheer pleasure to enjoy on its own or with an après-dinner spread of fruit and cheeses.
