Put this classic Clearview meal finisher with a slab of Chilli Chocolate from She Chocolat in Governors Bay and be wowed by the sensual delights you could usually only dream of. A hedonistic match made in heaven!! Clearview Sea Red is red blend from Hawkes Bay, late harvested for extra sweetness and raisin flavours, pressed out, fermented then fortified to 17%. An initial sweetness is followed by a complex palate of juicy fruits and a soft dry finish. A wine that will cellar indefinitely – but why wait, enjoy it now!
Winery notes (NV)
"This is the classic Clearview meal finisher. A fortified red wine style pioneered by Tim Turvey some 17 years ago. The wine has an initial sweetness and a weighty palate, oily with dense berry fruits and plums, followed by an opulently rich finish.
The grapes were hand picked very late at optimum ripeness in a late harvest style with shrivelling, but no botrytis, adding to the concentration and giving the resultant wine its rich berry and dried fruit flavours. Packaged in a 500ml extra tall bottle imported from Italy and sealed with Diam cork.
The name for this wine was inspired by the Split Enz track “I See Red” combined with the belief that having drunk the wine, one can walk on water! (“Think Red Sea”)."
