Here is a touch of gold for your glass! The 2011 Semillon has a complex aroma of creamy caramel, dried apricots and figs, and a slight touch of honeyed botrytis. The wine is less sweet than usual with 4.5 percent residual sugar, but the explosion of dried fruit flavors in your mouth will enhance any stone fruit dessert of cheese course to end your meal. The long finish show the delicious touch of honeyed botrytis which will develop more prominently in years to come.
