Brokenwood Umpire's Vineyard Dessert Style

Cracka Review

Although not botrytis influenced the raisin fruit gives a glace fruit richness to the aroma. Ripe fig/peel aroma combined with a slight volatile lift.

Although low alcohol, a luscious mouth feel from the retained sugar. More glace fruit flavours that carry right to the end and supported by a zesty acid balance.

A great dessert style giving richness without any cloying characters. Food - Fresh fruit, especially peaches, light dessert.

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
A luscious, golden, sweet treat made using the cane-cut method, this is a blend of semillon, chardonnay and sauvignon blanc. Dried citrus peel, cumquat, some dried apricot too. Terrific freshness and balance, and a gentle honey/nut finish. One to drink young as it's all there now.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Simple dehydration gives a wine akin to crystallised fruit in liquid form, finished off with a dash of lemon; for the punters.
