Kalyra 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Sticky Wicket
Santa Ynez Valley, California

Sticky Wicket refers to the sport of cricket, beloved of Kalyra's Australian winemaker. Although the 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Sticky Wicket contains 16.7 percent alcohol, it has not been fortified with brandy, but made in an ice wine style. Boasting a thick, creamy mouthfeel, the wine's flavors are of sweet, marmalade-like citrus with added floral notes.
