2010 Buller “Beverford gold” botrytis Semillon (10%), 375 ml, screwcap

Its a clear bright advanced gold colour. Curiously the back label matched my description pretty well. Stewed apricot, pear juice, botrytis dust and cinnamon. This smart wine is drinking very well, with enormous (almost ridiculously decadent) residual sugar in balance with its cleansing acidity. Some emergent hardness and brassiness suggest consumption over the next few years, but a lovely treat for those who have some bottles of this wine – very fairly priced when it was released.
