DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Pale gold. Still ripe Semillon fruit with lime peel and some citrus blossom.

Wine Making

The fruit was harvested in the early morning with only a light pressings fraction. The ferment was initiated in stainless steel and transferred to 3 and 4 year old French oak puncheons for completion. The wine was matured in oak for a further 9 months before bottling.

Cellaring

A leaner year has produced a Semillon that although leaner is still fresh on the palate. Enjoy with salt and papper squid or a platter of oysters.
