Description

This aromatic Semillon has great balance and generous flavour typical of this variety grown in the Clare Valley. Fermentation in new French oak has added complexity to the grassy and stone fruit characters of the Semillon. It has diverse food compatibility—in particular with seafood and pasta and may be cellared for a decade with confidence. This wine has been sealed under screw cap to retain its freshness and authenticity.

Description

Following crushing, the juice was left in contact with its skins for 12 hours to maximise fruit flavour extraction. All pressings juice was retained and has been utilised in this blend. A steady fermentation took place mostly in new French oak barrels (69%) with the remainder in stainless steel tanks. The oak portion remained in oak for nine months before back blending with the tank. The wine has been protein and cold stabilised to normal standards. Minimal sulphur dioxide has been used.
