Named after an historical surveyor’s geographic marker overlooking our vineyard, Glen Garvald wines represent our varietal and replanting response to climate change.
This single-vineyard, single-block dessert wine represents an exploration into hybridising the dessert wine styles based on vins de paille (straw wines) from Hermitage and the Cote de Jura and Vendange Tardive (Late Harvest) styles from Alsace in France. Grapes were left to linger and intensify on the vine to achieve high sugar levels and honeyed complexity. The wine walks a measured fine line between tension, generosity, and medium-sweet weight. It featured aromas of ginger snap, cardamon, cumquat, crème anglaise, fresh quince, pink peppercorn, and beeswax.
The palate is defined, with a fine line of toast and mid-level sweetness. It travels down the palate with length, assisted by moreish tactile phenolics. It featured Seville orange, white chocolate, crème caramel and Campari flavours, with a very long finish and resonance of flavour. This wine is suitable for vegans.
