Woodstock Botrytis Semillon 2009
Botrytis cinerea, an ugly pink and hairy mould, is responsible for this delicious drink. The mould feeds on the juice of the berries causing them to shrivel and concentrate. Warm and humid conditions are favourable for its onset and usually occurs at the end of the growing season. A somewhat messy winemaking process, but the resulting wine is a beauty from the beast.
Here at Woodstock Estate, we endeavor to capture the essence of our regional home - McLaren Vale. We strive for absolute quality, which for us, begins in our well established vineyards, through every phase of winemaking, to the manner of which our wines are presented and served to you. The Woodstock portfolio includes a range of fresh aromatic whites, opulent yet finely structured reds and finally, an eclectic little selection of after dinner wines.
Food Pairings for Woodstock Botrytis Semillon
Aromas of marmalade, candied pineapple and quandongs are the start to this flavoursome journey. An explosion of luscious honey, sweet citrus and crème brulée coat the palate. Subtle spice and well balanced acid provides a clean finish which entices you back for more and more.
