2011 Botrytis Semillon - "Yum"

The love just keeps rolling in for our 2011 Botrytis Semillon...

A review by Winsor Dobbin (22 June 2012)
This was the standout for me in a line-up of 16 top dessert wines from around Australia. It triumphed in some pretty outstanding company and then proved an excellent accompaniment to a slice of Dundee cake. The nose tells the story; rich honey and candied notes leading on to a seriously decadent palate in which luscious orange marmalade, apricot and toffee flavours are aided and abetted by some deliciously crisp acidity on the finish. Yum.

Elderton's vineyard and winemaking teams have combined this week to taste through the 2012 range of wines, to see how they are progressing. 

The result: the wines are looking good. Keep an eye out for vintage 2012!

2011 Botrytis Semillon

A great 4.5 star review by Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age Epicure 5.6.12

The great botrytised sweet whites of Australia are truly hedonistic pleasures. This yellow-gold Barossa semillon offers rich, sweet aromas of glace stone fruits, candied peel, honey and toffee. The palate is luxuriously sweet with luscious fruit, fine, lush texture and a clean, zesty aftertaste.  4.5 stars
