Requiring very specific conditions in the vineyard and a lot of care and physical work when we can make it the Botrytis Semillon has been absent from our shelves for the last few years. However 2016, marking only the third time it has been made, has giving us this sweet nectar for everyone to enjoy again. Aromatically rich and dense this sweet wine is already showing great notes of raw honey, orange marmalade, deep summer flowers, ginger, and ripe juicy yellow melon. With years of development ahead expect even more to show and reward. Or as we waiting is so difficult enjoy now with your favorite salty or blue cheese, spicy food, and of course Foie Gras.
