Description

"Deliciously decadent dessert wine with dried fruits, crème brulee and honey providing concentrated luscious and appealing flavours. This is a serious sticky made in the style of Sauternes and with similar concentration and power to very good examples. Bob Campbell MW Hand-picked nobly rotted Semillon fruit indigenous yeast fermented in French oak barriques to 14.5% alc. And 178 g/L RS, the wine aged 2 years in oak. Full, deep, light orange-hearted golden-yellow colour. The bouquet is very full and densely packed with complex and decadent aromas of ripe apricots and tropical fruits, crystallised stonefruits, orange marmalade, beeswax and burnished toffee, lifted with a little volatility. Very sweet to taste, deep and firmly concentrated flavours of stonefruits, caramelised fruits, orange marmalade, wild honey and toffee show the fruit ripeness and botrytis infection. The palate is weighty with power and unctuous textures, carried by alcohol drive. The acidity is discreet, but provides good balance and a suggestion of cut to the palate line which carries the wine to a long, lingering finish that combines bitter orange marmalade, toffee and nutty oak notes. This is a powerful and weighty, fully-botrytised Semillon dessert wine with orange marmalade, honey and toffee flavours. Serve instead of a liqueur and with caramel desserts and puddings over the next 6-8+ years Raymond Chan"
