2005 Fiddlehead Cellars Sweetie Late Harvest Wine

11.7% alc., 287 cases, 1/2 bottles ("little fiddle screwys"), $25. Sauvignon Blanc with a hint of Muscat Blanc. 50% of the grapes are dehydrated on the vine with extended hang time (35ยบ Brix) and 50% are dried in trays to concentrate the pure fruit fragrance. The wine is fermented cold, non-malolactic, with 14% residual sugar. Sweetie is a labor of love named after Kathy's husband and sweetie, Tom Doyle. · A delicious dessert wine combined flavors of tropical fruits, caramel, and vanilla. Sweet, but not cloying. Perfectly fine on its own served ice cold or pour it over vanilla bean ice cream topped with fresh pineapple and caramel syrup - a wine-food match that brings you to your knees.
