Woodstock Botrytis Semillon 375ml (McLaren Vale, SA)
Botrytis Cinerea, a pink and furry mould, is responsible for this delicious drink. The mould pierces the skins then feeds on the juice of the berries causing them to shrivel and concentrate. Mild and humid conditions are favourable for its onset and usually occurs at the end of the growing season. A somewhat messy winemaking process, but the resulting wine is a beauty from the beast.
Bright gold with tints of green. Attractive aromas of ripe pear, luscious apricot jam and orange marmalade. Summer flavours of ripe, semi-dried apricots, peaches and cream come to mind when tasting this wine. Although intensely sweet with a rich, luscious palate, the finish has a clean, lingering and balanced acidity.
Serve chilled with a cheese plate or a creamy, decadent dessert like Crème Broulee’ or Profiteroles
