Alluviale 2008 Anobli

Lovers of serious sweet wines will be orgasmic over this one; which sits somewhere between sauternes and tokaji on the flavour spectrum. Made from sauvignon blanc grapes grown in Hawke’s Bay and matured in French oak, it is a fragrant, rich and complex potpourri of flavours, unctuous and appealing but with lovely crisp natural acidity. The 270g/L of residual sugar means this is not for wimps - but I was blown away. $40 for 375mls.
