Semillon 2016 Limited Release

Grassy citrus fruit flavours and crisp acidity

$20.00 CELLAR CLUB
$18.00

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Vibrant yellow. Ripe varietal Semillon fruit with lime peel, citrus blossom, and a hint of freshly bailed straw.

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

Favourable vintage conditions in 2016 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 five to ten years. A versatile food wine, try pairing with a zesty lemon seafood risotto.

Palate:

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.
