I don’t drink much Dessert wine. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy it, but as everyone knows, the situation whence to drink stickies doesn’t arrive very often. I find most Australian Botrytis Semillon styles somewhat over intense and just too heavy to be drinkable – not enough acidity, too much sugar. Dessert Riesling however is unsurprisingly much more to my tastes, as is this light, bright style of sticky.
This is a rather delicious Sauternes then with everything ahead of it. Its not bad value either, all things being equal. 18++
