Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc Noble Late Harvest 2011

Visually appealing, alive with hues of shimmering burnished copper. Powerfully aromatic, displaying cinnamon, stewed apples and wafts of oven-crisp pie crust. The palate is wonderfully intense with toffee apple fl avours, quince paste and botrytis spice all accentuated by a lifted, pithy citrus aromatic which leads onto the bright and persistent finish.

Foie gras. Crêpes suzette, crème brûlée, fruit baseddesserts like fruit tarts and fl ans, especially whenthey contain apple. A range of cheeses, particularly Roquefort.
