d’Arenberg “The Noble” Botryotinia Fuckeliana 2015


4 in stock



The Noble Botryotinia Fuckeliana…now isn’t that a name…both the affectionate nickname given to Botrytis and the full scientific name. Botrytis punctures the skin of the grape allowing water to escape and sugars and flavors to concentrate. We LOVE botrytized wines…and we know you will too after you taste this. Intensely rich and sweet, this “sticky” as it is called in Australia is luscious and lovely! The nose is citric and tropical, the palate has a zesty zip, is velvety smooth, and layers of flavor that are loaded with citrus and tropical fruits and undertones of minerality and herbs.
