Botrytis Cinerea is known as the “noble” rot, a fungal infection which puts holes through the side of the grape causing dehydration of the grape and amongst other things, concentration of juice within the infected grape. The natural sugar levels therefore increase and the grapes are harvested late to fully capture the intensity of sweetness and complex flavours. The result is powerfully rich and opulent with flavours of dried apricots, citrus fruit marmalade and just a note of wild honey finishing with just a hint of refreshing citrus.
Rich and opulent with a refreshing citrus lift – the quintessence of botrytis Semillon. Citrus fruit marmalade flavours combine with apricot and hints of wild honey. The wine displays restrained acidity and light drying tannins which are balanced by the concentration of luscious natural sugars resulting in overall elegance and finesse.
Rich aromas of dried apricot, zesty citrus fruit marmalade and hints of honey.
