We are delighted to showcase a new addition to our portfolio, a single vineyard semillon. Our 2023 Semillon is exclusively available to purchase from our Cellar Door.
Tasting Notes from Jono Mettam - Winemaker
Semillon grown on the estate was selected to produce a single varietal wine for the first time since it was planted. The quality of the block is on full display, with only free run juice used to produce this wine. Bright freshly cut lemon aromas and hints of fresh spring herbs lead to a lively palate with lovely fruit weight and delicate mineral acidity that drives the wine to a long and crisp finish. Partial barrel fermentation supports the fruit and enhances texture and palate weight. Drink now but will reward cellaring for 3-10 years.
The semillon was hand harvested early morning on 22 February then immediately crushed and pressed into tank. The juice was then clarified using flotation and transferred into a combination of a stainless-steel tank and seasoned French oak puncheons for fermentation. The tank and barrel volumes were blended together prior to filtering and bottling in July 2023
