The nose is full of rich fruit, vanilla, and roses. The taste has that luscious, rich, spicy, dried fruit/passionfruit flavour with eucalyptus, cedar and a toasty background. The sweetness is superb, brilliantly balanced with a fresh acidity that gives the wine style and a lasting finish that really lingers.
A great dessert wine from Argentina, Septima Tardio is made from the Gewurztraminer grape, grown in the Finca vineyards in the shadow of the Andes. The grapes are hand-picked late in May (the normal harvest is February to April) to ensure the sugar levels are maximised. A slow fermentation is followed by 8 months in new American oak to extract the cedary notes and allow the wine to settle. The result is a really lovely rich sweet white wine - well worth enjoying.
It is clearly a dessert wine so it suits that stage of the meal, though is equally good with cheese especially blue cheese. Served well chilled and enjoy.
