Clarendelle ‘Amberwine’ Monbazillac 2012

Sweet Wine from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 22-Feb-2017
Bright, light golden colour with some depth, paler on the rim. This has a very fine, elegant and poised bouquet with aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits and waxy lanolin forming a tight, fresh and piquant core with an amalgam of citrus and nutty elements, unfolding a little honey, yellow florals and suggestions of musk, Sweet to taste and medium-bodied, this has gently rich and luscious flavours of yellow stonefruits and citrus fruits layered with honey, wax and lanolin, along with subtle notes of raisins and musk. The palate possesses some unctuousness which is balanced by fine fruit extraction and phenolic textures, and enhanced by soft acidity. The wine has a positive line leading to a honied, waxy finish of moderate length. This is a gently rich and luscious Monbazillac sweet wine with flavours of yellow stonefruits, lanolin and honey. Serve as an aperitif, or with fruit and light, baked desserts over the next 5 years. A blend of 80% Semillon and 20% Muscadelle, from Monbazillac, the fruit both raisined and botrytised, fermented to 13.0% alc. (500 ml) 17.5/20 Feb 2017 RRP $38.99
