2015 Botrytis Semillon

Sorry - this product is no longer available

Variety:  100% Semillon
Region:  Hunter Valley
Vineyard: John Tulloch

Tasting Notes

Bright golden yellow, with vibrant green freshness, this delicious dessert-style wine shows beautifully concentrated citrus-fruits, showing the zesty freshness of cumquat and the aromatic fullness of candied clementine, plus hints of apricot, flower-blossom/nectar, and vanilla.
Flavours are velvety and mouth-filling, with lush super-ripe sweetness balanced by bright acidity, giving zesty cumquat-like freshness and length. Eight months in barrel has contributed extra elements of spice, a silky flavour softness and sweeter oak mouth-feel onto the finish. Delightful 'crème brulee' toffee characters will develop into the future, adding more depth, complexity, charm and richness as the wine matures.

Drink: Within 5 – 7 years.
Food Match: Creamy blue cheese, or crème brulee.

Tasting Notes

The fruit for this wine is sourced from a very unique site, which at 550m above sea level is the highest altitude vineyard in the Hunter Valley. This elevation and continental climate lead to cooler-climate aromatics, expressing violet and bramble with hints of eucalypt. These dark, aromatically tantalising fragrances point to this wine's power. Indeed, Flavours are palate saturating with terrific clarity, texture and creamy depth; the richness is liquorice-like and richly packed with plush purplish fruits, plus
chocolatey soft tannins that glide invitingly along in tight and centered focus. There is a wisp of stalky freshness adding to the finish, complete with a final assertion of gentle powdery firmness. This wine is a real statement of the vineyard's pedigree, expressing beautiful balance and structure ideal for cellaring beyond 15 years.

Drink: 2019 to 2038.
Food Match: Beef, lamb or kangaroo.
