Product Description

Moppity Estate Botrytis Semillon

Varieties: Semillon

Vintage Current Vintage (enquires welcome)

Region: Riverina NSW

Winemaking notes: The Semillon grapes were left on the vine for approximately 2-3 months longer than normal to allow for development of the botrytis cinerea mould. Hand harvesting took place and the grapes were cold soaked for 24 hours prior to being pressed off into tank for a short settling period. The juice was then racked, warmed and inoculated with a yeast strain capable of tolerating high sugar levels and enhancing fruit flavours. After a few days of initial fermentation, the juice was transferred to New and used French Troncais and Allier Oak to ferment through to balanced sugar and alcohol level desired for this style. The fermentation was then arrested and the wine underwent a brief battonage process before Sulfur was added. Once the required aging and oak integration had been reached, the wine was pumped out of barrel and blended to the style required, then lightly fined and stabilized prior to gentle filtration prior to bottling.

Colour: Bright gold with a lemon hue

Nose: Floral aromas with citrus marmalade, dried apricot and spices with nuances of crème brulee and toffee

Palate: An unctuous wine, bursting with luscious citrus, marmalade and mandarin flavours, with a fresh, zesty finish.

Alcohol: 11.0%
