THE STYLE

Desert wines or “stickies” as they are known in an Australian context are only produced with success in a handful of regions in New South Wales. Semillon’s thick skin negotiates the humid damp foggy nights and early mornings followed by warm days that allow the noble rot Botrytis Cinerea to dominate the micro flora of the berries. The resultant wines display a creamy, silky and unctuous texture and complex aromas.
