The Château Old Vine Semillon 2011
Sold Out
Tasting Notes

The nose shows lifted aromas of citrus fruits and lemon butter with a hint of vanilla from partial barrel fermentation and maturation. The palate is delicate, yet intense, with great line and length finishing with a natural and refreshing acidity.

Winemaking

Handpicked early in the morning, the fruit was delivered cool to the winery. Gentle pressing to minimise phenolics and cold settling preceeded a long, cool fermentation averaging 14°C.
A small portion (5%) of the Semillon was fermented in new French oak using a wild yeast to give added complexity and structure to the wine.

Currently not available for purchase.
