Overview

The 2001 Smithbrook Botrytis Semillon is a serious style of botrytis, somewhat atypical to the often overtly sweet examples that are found in Australia. The freshness of apple and guava is apparent on the nose, whilst the palate shows some nice viscosity with concentrated orange marmalade and grapefruit tang.

Winery Tasting Notes

The 2001 Smithbrook Botrytis Semillon is a serious style of botrytis, somewhat atypical to the often overtly sweet examples that are found in Australia.

The freshness of apple and guava is apparent on the nose, whilst the palate shows some nice viscosity with concentrated orange marmalade and grapefruit tang. The long rolling aftertaste is accentuated with nice creaminess and vanilla oak. Whilst it seems tradition to drink a botrytis wine with a sweet dessert, we strongly recommend trying ours with some quality pate, maybe even as an entrée.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Smithbrook vineyard is located amongst majestic “tall trees” on a pristine hill in the Pemberton wine region in the south west corner of Western Australia.

Planted in the late 1980s, the vineyard represents the most significant mature vineyard in the region. The warm Indian Ocean to the West and the cool Southern Ocean to the south create a maritime climate.

Smithbrook focuses on two key varietals - Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot, identified as the best varieties for this region.

Smithbrook has a natural, sustainable approach to managing the vineyard; low-yielding dry grown vines, roaming Guinea Fowl to control insects and no harmful sprays all assist to grow balanced vines. Vineyard philosophy employed includes rigorous programme of heavy pruning, minimal irrigation and low cropping in order to increase the fruit quality of the vineyard.
