D'Arenberg The Noble Botryotinia Fuckeliana 2015 - fiche technique
Another cracking dessert wine in Noble series from d' Arenberg, this time with Semillon and Sauvignon: an Antipodean take on Sauternes, if you like.
For the avoidance of doubt, the scientific name for Botrytis (= 'noble rot') is botryotinia fuckeliana, named in honour of German botanist, Karl Fuckel. Living off a vineyard he acquired in the 1850's, Fuckel dedicated his life to the scientific study of plants.
A racy nose to start, citrus blossom, fresh grass and marmalade mix with tropical fruits and ripe, sweet passion-fruit. It’s an heady mix of complexity and decadence. The palate offers a spicy, zesty entry with the texture of lemon curd, all velvety and smooth with citrusy acid keeping it all in line. Layers of flavor keep on coming; includ-ing spicy orange cake, minerals and herbs.
