This webinar course examines sweet and fortified wines. We will taste and discuss the most important examples in each style in order to identify their defining characteristics, and learn how to tell them apart from other, similar styles.
In this webinar we taste four sweet wines in which botrytis plays a role. We will discuss what their main identifying characteristics are, and how to distinguish them. We will taste the wines below, with suggestions for wines to purchase in parentheses.
- Loire Valley Chenin Blanc (Bonnezeaux, Quarts de Chaume, Coteaux du Layon; or, Vouvray Moelleux)
- Sauternes/Barsac (or Ste Croix du Mont or Monbazillac)
- Tokaji (5 or 6 puttonyos is best)
- Botrytis sweet wine made from Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc or Semillon, from a non-European country (e.g. Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, USA). One good example is de Bortoli Noble One (Australia)"
