Brokenwood has made a range of sweet styles over the years using Semillon, Riesling and Gewürtztraminer. This wine is a 'blast from the past' following the first Late Picked Semillon made in 1983. This wine has lifted citrus and tropical fruit aromas. The palate is rich but has great zesty acidity to balance the sweetness. Perfect to accompany a fruit platter or served chilled from the fridge on a sunny afternoon.
Lovely depth of colour along with purple tints due to the dry year and slightly riper fruit. Verona Vineyard Shiraz is always characterised by the soft sweet plum pastille fruit note. This carries to the palate with background vanillin oak with most of the wine in a 2700L cask. Fine ripe tannins add to the fruit density, with some liquorice notes and persistent after taste. A Shiraz to age for many years.
