Semillon Limited Release 2015

Tasting Notes

Pale straw with a green hue.  Ripe varietal Semillon fruit with lime peel, fruit salad and a hint of freshly mown grass.  A vibrant fresh wine with grassy and citrus fruit characters up front and crisp acidity across the palate. Subtle barrel fermentation characters provide depth and texture with seamless oak integration supporting the elegant Semillon fruit.

Winemaking

Barrel fermented in 3 and 4 year old American and French Puncheons the wine was then aged in the same barrels for 8 months before bottling.

Cellaring

Favourable vintage conditions in 2015 enabled us to produce some excellent white wines with intensity of flavour and great depth of varietal fruit. With superb balance and integrated flavours, we believe this wine will continue to develop in bottle for a further ten years or more. A versatile food wine, try pairing with a zesty lemon seafood risotto.

"Rutherglen’s continental climate is ideal for the production of Semillon. We aim for a balanced style, with varietal grassy notes, ripe citrus fruits and balancing oak." - Colin Campbell
