Sweet side of Semillon

Margan Hunter Valley Botrytis Semillon 2005
This wines has tropical fruit and the volatility that accompanies many botrytis wines. The palate is very thick and the acidity seems shy though the stats say otherwise at 10 g/L. RS 12.7%, alcohol 10.5% $25 (375ml) at Traverso’s Margan

Peter Lehmann Barossa Botrytis Semillon 2001
There’s wet straw and caramel in the evolving nose. The mouth is just stunning with ample acidity to balance the thickness creating an ideal balance. RS 12.4% $19.99 at Traverso’s Peter Lehmann
