Elderton Botrytis Semillon 2005 / 375 ml.

Item#: 25433

ST9191 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Sep/Oct 2007
Bright gold. Ripe peach and apricot scents are deepened by buttery toffee and toasted nuts. Silky, sweet and pure, displaying an array of caramelized orchard and pit fruit flavors. Lush and open-knit on the long, sappy finish. This is a dessert by itself.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Oct 2006
Somewhat under the radar for American consumers is Elderton’s top-class Semillon Botrytis. The 2005, a Sauternes look-alike, reveals aromas of creme brulee, buttery pineapple, and toasty oak in its rich, moderately sweet personality. Good background acidity and structure suggest it will evolve nicely for a decade.

Where It's From

Country / Australia

View more wines from Australia

When casual wine drinkers think of Australian wine, they probably think of the critter-laden labels of Yellow Tail and The Little Penguin, among others. And while large wine companies dominate the Australian list, there are also a great number of smaller producers creating highly-rated, award-winning wines.

The majority of Australian wine is produced in South Australia, with most of that (those “critter wines”) carrying a South Eastern Australia appellation. Subregions such as Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale are home to smaller producers and higher quality wines. Victoria and New South Wales are also significant regions, and wines from Western Australia are reaching America in increasing numbers.

Though Shiraz is the grape most associated with Australia, they’ve also had great success with Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling and Grenache.
