Reschke Botrytis Sauvignon Blanc (375ml)

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Here's a little sweetie from Mount Gambier in South Australia that would be great with your cheese or crème brulee after dinner. Lots of apricots and honey run around the nasal passages, and on the palate it's like orange marmalade on toast with well-balanced sweetness and a lush finish. Stick this 'stickie' in the cellar for a couple of years, or enjoy right now.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Deep straw and starting to get that typical golden swirl in the glass.

Nose: Complex and extremely rich bouquet of apricots mango and honey. Just a hint of toast from the barrels.

Palate: The palate is long and full flavoured with honey and apricot dominating. Richly textured and balanced sweetness with a very long honeyed and orange peel aftertaste.

Winemaker's Comments: The grapes were allowed to hang well into autumn. The moist dewy mornings resulted in a ‘noble rot’ infection. The grapes when harvested were an astonishing 23 Beaume. Each berry was very raisined and highly concentrated.

Winemaking techniques have been used to create a wine in the traditional Bordeaux style. Oak maturation has been used to give the bouquet complexity and the palate its fine balance.
