From the same old vines that we produce our dry Semillon we also produce a Botrytis Semillon dessert style wine. This wine is beautifully balanced and unique in its structure.

Winery Tasting Notes
The wine has quince and pineapple characters with citrus overtones.
The palate is rich and luscious without being cloying with delicious nuts and dried fruit flavours coupled with distinctive Hunter Valley citrus. The wine finishes long and clean with fresh citrus acidity which saves it from being cloying.
It works well with desserts (as opposed to being too sweet) and provides a perfect contrast when matched with cheese or pate.
This wine was picked at the equivalent of 22 baumé, which ensures a rich luscious palate but had sufficient whole fruit to ensure that we have plenty of primary fruit characteristics. No oak was used and the wine was bottled early to ensure its fresh fruit characters are maintained.
