Kiona 2010 Single Berry Select Botrytised Chenin Blanc (Red Mountain)

Editors' Choice

Among Kiona's strengths, the dessert wines are right at the top. This wine—comparable in many ways to the Single Berry Select from Eroica (which costs more than twice as much)—features Chenin Blanc rather than Riesling, and why not? It's a seductive, delicious bottle that expresses the condensed essence of the grape. Even at 274 g/L of residual sugar, it does not translate to a cloying or super-sweet wine; rather it is buoyed by supporting acidity, while filling the mouth with candied fruits, flowers, and buttery pastry notes.
