FSW 8B Wratonbully Botrytis Viognier

FSW 8B Wratonbully Botrytis Viognier (37.5cl)

FSW 8B Wratonbully Botrytis Viognier – Autumn in Wrattonbully – dewy mornings, soft mists and warm sun on ripe grapes – perfect for ‘Botrytis cinerea’ and the naturally alluring Viognier grape to unite and create the golden nectar that becomes Yalumba Hand Picked Botrytis Viognier. The intense flavours of Viognier have great synergy with the richness of the Botrytis, offering opulent flavours of apricots, peaches and spice. Exotic, luscious, long and elegant, this wine is an experience to be shared.

A select patch of our Viognier vines are encouraged to grow a dense canopy reducing air flow and encouraging the infection by and growth of Botrytis cinerea. Botrytised grapes are difficult to press and several pressings are required to liberate all of the viscous nectar. Good quality juices are hard to ferment, so a special yeast strain is used to balance the ideal sugar levels, allowing the wine to find its natural balance.

The nose is intense honeysuckle, musk and vanilla with high tones of lemon thyme and ginger. The palate is long and luscious with opulent flavours of stone fruit and spice. The balance is perfect, delicately poised between sweetness and acidity. This finish is lingering and memorable.

Yalumba

“Founded in 1849 by Samuel Smith, Yalumba is Australia’s oldest family owned winery. Today, the winery is owned by fifth generation descendants, Robert & Sam Hill Smith and their families.
Yalumba is determined to create wines with genuine regional character, varietal flavour and individual personality; wines that say remarkable things about some of the world’s most remarkable wine regions.”

Wrattonbully

South Australia is the largest wine producing state of Australia. It may be surprising to most that the Riverland region is the state’s largest grape producing area. The Barossa Valley is famed for its full-bodied, rich, ripe and generous reds. The Coonawarra is internationally renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon (and prized ‘terra rossa’ soils). Padthaway, McLaren Vale, and the Clare Valley all make major contributions, and the importance of the Adelaide Hills is rapidly increasing.
