Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, cloudy juice fermented with cultured yeast in demi-muids, left on fermentation lees for two years with low sulphur. A very complex, full-bodied semillon that has no parallel I have tasted or read about. It's layered, with notes of biscuit and honey, the acidity ample to provide balance.

Being a chardy drinker this wine is a great alternative to appeal to Chardonnay and non Chardonnay drinkers. This is a well balanced wine with elegant oak ready to drink now. A pleasant surprise from one of Australia’s less known wine regions. I look forward to seeing what else the vineyard offers, definitely one to watch.
