Now this is interesting! Made from botrytis Semillon, but tastes unlike any other botrytis Semillon that I’ve had.
Deep amber and maple in colour. Nose is a lovely maple and caramel. The palate is wonderful. Maple syrup, smoke, coffee, caramalised fruits (peaces, orange, pears) and toffee. Viscous and sweet. Lovely sweet finish that lingers for ages.
It doesn’t have that “wow” factor but it’s damn nice and well worth picking up.
