Fresh Lifted citrus blossom, bright and lifted green apple and
subtle oak characters of cinnamon and cashew complete the nose.
Warming spices on the palate, citrus with a crisp mouth feel
on the finish. A complex mid palate showing texture and balance.
Semillon was harvested on the 12th February 2015. The fruit was
machine harvested in the early hours of the morning during the
coolest part of the day.
The fruit for the 2015 part barrel fermented. Fruit was promptly crushed and pressed and
allowed to settle for four days. The juice was racked clean, warmed
and inoculated with a selected yeast strain. Once ferment was
underway 70% of the wine was transferred to French oak barriques to
complete fermentation with the balance being tank fermented. The
oaked portion was allowed nine months maturation 60% in new
French oak puncheons and barriques and the balance in older oak.
Following this the wine was blended, fined and filtered before being
sterile filtered to bottled.
Cellar for up to eight years.
Light to medium straw.
