Now here’s one hell of a sweet ‘effin deal. A Trophy, Gold medal and 94/100 Bob Campbell rated sticky (sweet dessert style wine) on the chopping block at $12.99!
It wasn’t that long ago that this single estate, premium sticky was being sold in the market for $30. With the ARA winery being bought out by the Giesen Wine Group, some of the ARA brands are being dissolved including their prized (and absolutely kick arse!) “Single Block” range.
It won the Trophy for Champion Sweet Wine at the Marlborough Wine Show a few years back, while Master of Wine Bob Campbell also talked it up as one of his favourites in a line-up of dessert wines produced from the Sauvignon Blanc grape, like this one.
Bob said “My top wine, ARA 2014 Select Block Cut Cane Sauvignon Blanc ($29.99) gained much of its concentration and sweetness after the canes were cut well before harvest. Botrytis was a bonus after some late season rain. It’s a luscious, sweet, honeyed wine that still retains some passionfruit varietal flavours.”
ARA Winemaker Jeff Clarke carefully selected premium parcels of fruit from specially identified sites (blocks) dotted around ARA’s single estate in Marlborough’s Waihopai Valley.
The ultimate classy wine to cap off the dinner party with a cheese board or sweet dessert! Drink now to 2020.
