The Real Review,  Huon Hooke 

 

Lillypilly, based at Leeton, is a sweet wine specialist, where Robert Fiumara makes sensational wines, both varietal and blended, from botrytised grapes. This one is 60% sauvignon blanc, 30% vermentino and 10% muscat.

 

The colour is deep golden with light amber tints; the bouquet is very complex and expressive, showing a combination of honey, vanilla, caramel, toffee, and a little development. In the mouth, it’s extremely rich and concentrated, powerful and long, yet the texture is seamless and svelte. It’s all enlivened by vibrant acidity. An utterly delicious sweet wine. (Screwcap)

General Info:

The semi-arid climate that prevails in the Riverina softens towards the end of autumn with cool nights, and mornings made damp by fog and dew. These are perfect conditions for the development of botrytis fungus on the grapes, and the production of sweet white botrytis wines. The climate is one of the strengths of the Riverina region, helping to make it an ideal wine grape region in Australia, and the main factor in making it one of the best producers of botrytis wines in the world.
