Why do we love this wine?

One of the most beautiful dessert wine styles we've ever tried. Everything in the right place, and anyone with any kind of sweet tooth should feel honoured to get some of this. At this price, they also should feel like all their Christmases have come at once.

King Valley may not be be the first region you think of when you think of botrytis Riesling, and probably for good reason. It's risky business making botrytis Riesling - a fine balance of the right grapes, temperatuer, moisture, timing and the right fungal infection taking hold. If the wrong one gets in, it can wreak havoc on remaining grapes and make everything taste like, well, mould. Luckily, this was not even remotely the case here.

Imagine an expression of the brilliant fineness of cool climate Riesling in such a high altitude region (fine, taught, mineral), the background tropical flavours amped up like turning them up to 10 on a studio mixing board, and then give that a tweak of the typical marmaladey unctuousness that botrytis brings with it. You end up with liquid gold.

An amazing expression of this grape variety, at yet another mad price. These are half bottles of golden goodness, and you can have a dozen for only $70.80. There's dessert sorted for a little while.
