Miranda Golden Botrytis 2002

For a somewhat humble label, something very right happened with this wine in 2002.  It is made from semillon, and packs a solid 225g/litre of residual sugar.  But, it is not cloying.  Instead, it has an aroma (and taste) of luscious apricots.  It would not be embarrassed were it in the company of the more famous De Bortoli Noble One.  89-90 points (7.4-7.5/10)

Abv: 10%
Price: about $15
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Yes
