Autumn in Wrattonbully - dewy mornings, soft mists and warm sun on ripe grapes - perfect for ‘Botrytis cinerea’ and the naturally alluring Viognier grape to link and create the golden nectar that becomes FSW8B. The flavours of Viognier have a wonderful synergy with the richness of the Botrytis, offering opulent flavours of apricots, peaches and spice. Exotic, luscious, long and elegant, this is an experience to be shared.
94 points - "Exotic tropical fruit bouquet, with fresh apricot, vanilla, crème-brûlée, ginger and cardamom; the palate is unctuous, yet not heavy, with a delightfully refreshing cold tea component cleaning up the finish."
Ben Edwards, James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion 2012
5 stars - "Australia makes world class botrytis-affected sweet whites. This has marmalade, apricot, candied peach and exotic spice aromas of thrilling intensity and complexity. Luscious flavours of mango and sweet citrus flow through a silky palate of mellow texture, perfect balance and a lingering, tangy finish. Drink over three years. Food ideas: Fruit and ice-cream desserts; raspberry pancakes."
