Trevor Jones 2009 Sticky Boots [375ml]

It's near impossible to get botrytis in the Barossa Valley. The fruit for this was from cordon cut Semillon, grown on the valley floor, from the Dorrien area, west of the Barossa Valley Highway half way between Tanunda and Nuriootpa. Which helps explain why I couldn't detect botrytis but was amazed by an extraordinary complexity that was far more than you could hope for from a simple late picked grape. It's not Noble One but it's a superb dessert wine at a ridiculous bargain basement clearance price.

Our Price: $10 per bottle by the dozen
