D'ARENBERG 2010 THE NOBLE BOTRYOTINIA FUCKELIANA

375ml - 77% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc - Botryotinia fuckeliana is the scientific name for a certain type of mould that affects fruit. Botrytis cinerea is a form that affects vineyards and is more affectionately known as ‘noble rot’. 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, Botrytiana fuckeliana is an asexual spore, named after German botanist, Karl Wilhelm Gottlieb Fuckel.

There is a beautiful lemon butter character on the nose with a range of fruits including gooseberry, cumquat, green apple and mixed peel in the background. The palate is thick and luscious with a wonderful silky texture. The lemon butter character is even more dominant on the palate with a deeper layer of green mango, limecello and hints of frangipani. It’s wonderfully complex and indulgent with a subtle edge.This will be a very fun wine to match with a range of desserts, especially something with a citrus component such as a lemon and lime tart.
