Tasting Note

What's behind the name? The Latin name for Botrytis is Botryotinia Fuckeliana, after 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 must-have talking point for any celebratory dinner. 

Lemon curd and tropical fruits spring from the glass. A subtle cut hay character props up upon further inspection. The palate, while thick and luscious, has a beautifully racy line of acid adding freshness and ensuring balance. More lemon curd flavours are enhanced by a range of other fruits including gooseberry, cumquat, green apple and mixed peel. This wine is wonderfully complex and indulgent with a subtle edge. Our lasting impressions are again influenced by the bright acidity which ensures a clean, crisp finish with persistence of the delightful fruit characters minus any cloying sensation.

Online exclusive: this wine is available to buy on our website, and not in our Bath shop. If you wish to collect from our shop, simply order online and select the ‘free collection’ option at the checkout. Your wine will be available for you to collect within three business days.

Winemaking

Botrytis Cinerea, affectionately known as Noble Rot, weakens grape skins causing water to evaporate which results in sweet, concentrated flavours. These shrivelled berries are basket pressed before a long fermentation, resulting in a luscious wine with intense richness and viscosity.

Food Recommendation

Classic desserts such as tarte au citron with crème fraîche and île flottante. Would also be ideal with strong blue cheeses, or for after-dinner quaffing whilst discussing the name of this wine with your guests.
