Something Different

Deen De Bortoli Vat Series All Rounder Dry Botrytis Semillon, Riverina 2002 $15

Like the dry botrytis wines of the famous Sauternes chateaux, this is a superb wine of great complexity. I assume it’s so cheap because no-one knows of it. Deep golden with toast, butter and honey botrytis-tinged aromas, it has mature richness and depth, a hint of sweetness and a clean, firm finish. Drink now. 12.5 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: smoked trout paté

Stockists: Dan Murphy’s Mona Vale & Burwood
