Honey, Lemon, Grapefruit and hints of pineapple on the nose. Lively, fresh citrus and stonefruit on the fleshy palate with clean, fresh acidity on a long lingering finish. A seamless wine of fine acid structure and intense varietal flavours driving the length on the palate.
Hand-picked and basket pressed, this carefully crafted wine is matured for seven months in the finest seasoned French oak puncheons, enhancing aroma, whilst building flavour complexity, depth and length. Although approachable in its youth, this exceptional Barossa Semillon has considerable breadth and length of flavour and can cellar for up to twenty years.
Many priceless old vine Semillon vineyards are under threat in the Barossa, however in making this wine we have preserved an important part of the Barossa’s heritage. The nose shows lifted aromas of citrus fruits and lemon butter with a hint of vanilla from partial wild yeast and barrel fermentation and maturation. The palate is delicate, yet intense, with great line and length finishing with a natural and refreshing acidity.
