Product Description

The 2015 d'Arenberg The Noble Botryotinia Fuckeliana from the Adelaide Hills region of South Australia is a classic dessert-wine blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc that recalls the most famous of all: Sauternes. This delicious wine offers a racy nose to start, as citrus blossom, fresh grass, and marmalade mix with tropical fruits and ripe, sweet passion fruit. The palate offers a spicy, zesty entry with the texture of lemon curd, all velvety and smooth with citrusy acid keeping it all in line. Layers of flavor keep on coming; including spicy orange cake, minerals and herbs.

Botryotinia fuckeliana is the scientific name for the mold more affectionately known as ‘noble rot’ that affects fruit. Noble rot weakens the skin of the grape which causes the water in the berry to evaporate and leaves behind the sugar and nutrients. Paradoxically to the lewd sounding name, Botryotinia fuckeliana is an asexual spore, named after German botanist, Karl Wilhelm Gottlieb Fuckel.

Varietal Composition: 95 Semillon, 5 Sauvignon Blanc

91 Points - James Halliday
"95/5%, 3 days on skins, then pressed, mainly matured in tank, 17% in used French oak for 10 months. Intensely sweet cumquat and canned fruit."
