2010 Reserve Semillon “Botrytis”

$40.00

Colour: Rich with green and gold’s befitting this majestic style
Nose: Strongly reminiscent of Orange blossom and marmalade, supported by a subtle backdrop of vanillin
Palate First impressions are of richness and texture, principally contributed by the level of residual sugar and botrytis. Strong orange marmalade and a subtle influence of the oak deliver a long, rich and complexly flavoured palate with incredible length.
Food: The perfect accompaniment to foie gras
Cellaring: A wine that will continue to evolve for at least 2 decades.
