Woodstock Botrytis Semillon 2006

I seem to have a semi permanent shortage of dessert wines, an unhappy state of affairs, remediable only by forethought. A warm climate doesn't seem to bother the production of interesting botrytis semillon, as this wine from the warm McLaren Vale and the benchmark Noble One from De Bortoli from the hot Riverina attest. Fashioned by Scott Collett and Ben Glaetzer, an attractive aroma of honey is supplemented on the palate by notions of apricot, peach, honey and sweet nectarines. Medium length and sweet, this is a good value wine at $18. 87 points
