Caress Cuvee Blanc 2012

Just enjoy the nose of this bright, vibrant golden wine. Its aromatic profile ranges from subtle fruit like candied peach, honeyed apricots, or quince with a honeysuckle floral note and a little spice.

Really a deceptive wine, with such a perfumed nose, you might think it’s going to be slightly sweet but no, it’s actually dry with a peach, apricot and tropical fruit flavors with a long, lingering, sensual finish.

Because of its unique flavor profile, Caress is actually a very food-friendly wine, making it a great choice when contemplating foie gras, oysters, lobster or crab, butter or cream based sauces, curries and both Asian and Indian food in general.

For a incredible dessert poach pears in a little Caress with a spoon of sugar and serve with white chocolate, Crème fraîche and vanilla ice cream. Fabulous!

Winemaker Notes

Blessed with ideal weather 2012 was one of those idyllic growing seasons. The 2012 grape harvest yielded generous amounts of high quality fruit causing us and our fellow winemakers to use words such as "excellent," "outstanding" and "ideal" to describe the vintage.
