Here's brilliant value in a dessert wine. This Sauternes style Noble Rot affected Aussie Semillon is nicely sweet but with a seam of acidity that keeps things fresh and actually activates the saliva glands, which is a wonderful sensation when sipping a sweet dessert wine. Citrusy/orange rind/marmalade/ginger flavours mingle with honey on a viscous palate that seems to last for ages. This would pair well with holiday season candied fruit cakes, or sip alongside blue veined cheese or foie gras. Dec. 2017.
