Botrytis Affected Optima

Botrytis Affected Optima Wine Details
Price: $29.99 per bottle

Description: This delectable dessert wine exhibits a very aromatic profile of baked pear, fig, orange and ripe citrus with a classic honey bees wax note derived from the Botrytis mould. The palate is full of candied sweetness balanced by firm natural acidity. This wine is best served slightly chilled and pairs well with dishes that incorporate foie gras as a key ingredient, but also with fruit desserts or Cambozola cheese.

Varietal Definition
Recent crossing of Riesling and Sylvaner grape with the Muller-Thurgau. Widely grown in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region of Germany and used for blending purposes in the white wines of the region.
