2018 Jessica’s Botrytis Semillon
The Hunter Valley’s warm lingering summers offer the ideal conditions for the “nobal rot” (Botrytis Cinerea). On the slopes of the Estate Semillon block a small parcel in the lowest lying area of the vineyard is cordon cut to concentrate the fruits natural sweetness.
The method of hand harvesting the vineyard over three different occasion provides the ripest and most concentrated flavours. This style of wine displays the diversity of the Semillon grape.
A beautiful bright yellow which will deepen to a golden hue with bottle age. Displaying tropical fruit aromas with a hint of citrus. It is incredible freshness and balanced with luscious honey dew mouth- feel and complex acidity and continued clean primary fruit textures to the finish.
Cuisine: Creamy blue cheese, crème brulee
