Botrytis


This is an outstanding Sauterne wine from the Semillon grape variety, produced by De Bortoli in Australia 2006
I tasted this wine on the Intermediate WSET Course ( Wine,Spirit & Education Trust) . On this course we use a Systematic approach to the tasting of each wine.
It is deep gold in appearance & produces a pronounced nose of dried fruits and hints of vanilla.I blogged this wine due to its long length of flavour on the Palate, which really stood out for me.
On the palate its well rounded packing a full body of long lengthed honey notes with subtle oak, which would make it a great accomplice to a dessert or cheese, but personally I could drink this as a dessert of its own!
£15.99
