Trophy - New Zealand International Wine Show 2008

5 stars - Raymond Chan
"100% Muller-Thurgau, fully botrytis-affected and fermented to 8.0% alc. and 254 g/L RS. Deep golden colour with orange hues, a little lighter on the rim. The bouquet is very full and densely packed with harmoniously integrated aromas of ripe citrus and tropical fruits along with honey, marmalade and crystallised dried fruits, lifted with some volatility. This is decadent and opulent in expression. Extremely sweet and lusciously rich on palate, the flavours are fully integrated with citrus fruits, tropical fruits, marmalade and honey, along with a whisker of volatility. The mouthfeel is unctuously smooth and seamless, with balanced acidity lending energy and tension. The wine flows gently to a long, lingering, viscous and rounded finish. This is a beautifully rich and decadent botrytised dessert wine with harmoniously integrated, opulent flavours and a seamless-flowing palate. Serve with steamed puddings or instead of a liqueur over the next 4-5 years. (375 ml) 19.0/20 Feb 2016 RRP $28.00" (Feb 2016)

Waikato Herald - Yvonne lorkin
"It's no surprise this snazzy sweetie won the dessert wine trophy at the NZ International Wine Show back in 2008 - but wow, four years on, it's tasting absolutely sublime. With exotic aromas of toffee and tangelo and intense, luxurious citrus, honeyed sweetness and clean, refreshing acidity on the finish - it's mind-bending stuff" (Dec 2016)

Wowee! This was the first wine made by this estate when they took over in 2007. This delectable little sticky is dangerously good and drinking beautifully now.

The Botrytis Selection has only improved 15+ years on. An ever opulent  wine shows incredible natural sweetness, integrated with stunning honeyed lime and stone fruit flavours. A whopping 254 grams per litre of residual sugar balanced beautifully.

Apricot, spiced orange, honeysuckle and lime marmalade, mouth-coating texture and bright orange and lime to balance the luscious flavours. It finishes with candied tropical fruits, a hint of toffee and a lingering, apricot-rich honeyed finish.
