Shaw Vineyards Botrytis Semillon 2012

I do enjoy a "sticky" with my preferred style being the concentrated and syrupy type. This example from Shaw doesn't fall into that category and as a result I didn't enjoy it that much.

A match for a cheese platter perhaps, I just felt it was sweet white wine. I can see the appeal it would have for some but when factoring in the cost, there are others on the market I would lean towards.

Light golden appearance, orange peel, mandarin and citrus flowers were delivered with a hint of spiced pear too. Despite not having that density as mentioned earlier, the length was pretty good.
