De Bortoli Wines has a long history with the vineyards we source this Botrytis Semillon from each year, and given the right weather conditions, we produce some excellent Botrytis infected fruit. Regular visits to the vineyard tracking the development of flavour and sweetness allow us to harvest at the perfect time. Each vineyard is fermented separately over 2-3 months with constant monitoring to achieve the perfect balance of sweetness, alcohol and volatile lift in the final wine. This enables the essence of each Botrytis vineyard to be highlighted in the final blend.
Layers of nectarines, quinces, citrus flavours with a subtle hint of nougat nuttiness. Subtle oak interplay adds to the texture and a well balanced acidity gives length and structure to this delicious wine.

Burnished gold. Classic Riverina botrytis semillon - honeyed stone fruit, apricot, baby pine accompanied by strong botrytis notes and lively citrus acid. Drink or keep. Ridiculous value for the complexity and quality. It often out performs its big brother in wine shows too.
