Bright lemon yellow with a hint of gold.
Elevated lemon scented gum, freshly laundered clothing and citrus sorbet describe the highly engaging and enticing bouquet. Subtle savoury biscuit and light toast originating from a combination of the oak barriques and varietal Semillon character as it begins to age provide deeper complexity.
Super vibrant and tangy in the mouth with lemon flavours and generous natural fruit sweetness yet a surprising lightness of touch as it glides along the palate. Mouth-watering acidity cleans the finish and contributes striking purity and length.
2013 saw the creation of a lower alcohol, lighter, fresher style of this wine. The fruiting Semillon canes were cut just above the cordon as they achieved ripeness, restricting their access to water. The fruit dried and shrivelled on the canes, concentrating the sugar, flavour and acid for approximately six weeks before harvest. Great care was taken to ensure the fruit remained healthy during this period and that precise levels of concentration were achieved. The fruit and juice was macerated for 12 hours in the press prior to extraction. The wine was fermented and matured in French oak with lees stirring providing tannin structure and complexity.
