Great Wine+Situation Experiences #3
ONE OF THE WORLD’S BEST BUYS IN SWEET WINE
Botrytis is a Fall season fungus that attacks the Semillon grapes in the Sauternes region of Bordeaux adding exotic flavours and richness to the wine. Liquid gold is how it’s often described. Other parts of the world also get lucky and produce their own version of Sauternes, usually at a fraction of the price. Such as De Bortoli from Australia’s Yarra Valley. Chill well and have sometime between supper and bed.
