Rich, complex aromas of lemon rind, jasmine, honeysuckle, crème brulee, woodsmoke & grilled nuts.
Depth and complexity garnered from fermentation of beautifully ripe fruit in new French oak. Vivid, pristine fruits of preserved lemon, kiwi and mandarin meld into woodsmoke char, roasted hazelnuts and crème caramel richness. A ripe and rich salted lime acid line adds further complexity whilst focusing and refreshing the finish.
Fruit was machine picked in the cool of night and pressed directly to tank for settling prior to fermentation in 100% new oak. Following 8 months maturation on ferment lees the wine was blended in tank. The wine was heat and cold stabilised with minimal fining and filtered prior to bottling in December 2018.
Semillon as a variety is well suited to ageing, which combined with the new oak component means this wine will continue to evolve over the next 10 years.
Pale gold with bright green tints.
Drink with porcini mushroom risotto topped with shaved truffle.
