A complex, medium to full-bodied example of barrel-fermented Semillon. A delicate orange blossom perfume with notes of yellow plum, passionfruit and tobacco leaf. A voluptuous mid-palate with hints of lime cordial, gooseberry and lemon cheesecake reveal Semillon’s character and inherent weight. A wine that will benefit from cellaring and a definite food pairing partner.

The grapes were picked in early morning and transported to the cold container for overnight storage. The next day the grapes were first bunch sorted before being destemmed and the berry sorted. The berries went straight into the press, and the juice thereafter was settled for 3 days before being racked and inoculated for fermentation. The wine was fully barrel fermented and aged a further 6 months, before being lightly filtered and bottled.
