d'Arenberg The Noble Botryotinia Fuckeliana 2015

Botryotinia Fuckeliana is the scientific name for Botrytis named in honour of German botanist Karl Fuckel. I'm sure most readers couldn't care less re the history with more attention probably being paid to the fact that the magical four letter combination has already appeared a few times in this post...

A blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc (95/5) highlighted by apricots, canned peach nectar and sweet orange candy. It's thick and syrupy to taste but holy fuckeliana it's sweet. Too sweet. I know some people who could drink this by the gallon but I struggled getting through a taste.
