The Urn Botrytis Semillon 2014

$35.00

This wine shows a bright golden hue with expressive aromas of honey suckle, cumquats, apricot nectar, lime marmalade and well integrated french oak.

Botrytis fruit characters including peach and glace pineapple intermingle with hints of Brazil nut and butterscotch to define a long alluring palate.

 

Description

THE URN  2014  


Background:

All Heydon Estate wines are the product of single vineyards with fruit estate grown on our old Wilyabrup property in the heart of the Margaret River appellation.

This wine is 100% Semillon from our old block planted in 1988.

It has always been a passion of George’s to produce a Sauternes style Semillon which is not in the ilk of sticky Australian style sweet wines, but delicate and with a dryer finish. We are very proud of our 2006 wine.

The otherwise difficult vintage conditions in 2006, with cooler and often wet periods impeding ripening, were none the less ideal for the controlled bunch infection of the noble Botrytis cinerea mould, leading to sweetening and flavour concentration.
