Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Brightly polished gold with green tints on the rim.

Bouquet: The lifted nose shows classic botrytis marmalade characters and deep honey notes.

Palate: A wine of remarkable intensity with superb weight of luscious honeyed fruit on the middle palate. This richness is beautifully counter-balanced by natural acidity and it finishes with a delightfully clean complexity.

Enjoy: Botrytis Semillon is a very versatile wine style and is naturally thought of as a dessert wine. It is an excellent complement to cheese, particularly soft, ripe cheeses and good blue cheese accompanied by fresh fruit. It is also the perfect wine for a scrambled egg and smoked salmon Sunday brunch.
