McWilliams Morning Light Botrytis Semillon 2009


A gorgeous golden colour greets you, and fans of Botrytis, it's time to get excited.

This wine is presents very well. All elements are in check with silky texture, super long length, and although sweet as you'd expect, it's not a sickly sweetness which turns some punters away from this style of wine.

Dried fruits of apricots and mango with some floral aromas get the party started. Intense and seductive. The thick syrupy consistency and texture on the palate were a highlight for me. That mango and apricot deliciousness followed through beautifully with some mandarin and orange peel. And talk about length. Whoa! 

Every sip brought even more joy, and for fans of Botrytis, I can certainly highly recommend this wine.

Sublime!
