1 Trophy, 1 Gold
Perfect at the end of a meal with a fruit desert such as summer pudding.
Medium gold in colour.
Classic botrytis, honey, apricot and nectar combined with pineapple.
Rich and intense ripe peach, honey with Botrytis characters. A finely balanced structure is further enhanced by an extremely persistent and complex finish.
After the warm, dry and long summers that have persisted in South Australia in recent years, we decided to make the most of the wet end to the 2010 growing season. The 'noble intent' was to allow the natural inoculation of Noble Botrytis in our patch of Verdelho. The conditions that followed were near perfect when wet conditions were followed by dray datys. Soon enough the grapes had desiccated and formed excellent botrytis flavours of honeysuckle and cumquat which have melded into this delicious desert wine
