This Semillon is quartz-green in colour with lifted, estery, citrus bud, passionfruit and lemon-grass aromas. As the wine matures it will develop the lemon-butter, toast and marmalade characters consistent with this variety.
The fruit was grown on our home block from a dry and hot year, so we decided to pick a little earlier than usual. To amplify the fruit notes we also used a specific Sauvignon Blanc yeast. While young, the wine exhibits citrus bud and lime aromas and the refined palate possesses grapefruit and lime flavours and a refreshingly dry finish. This wine will mature well over the medium term and, with careful cellaring, will develop bottle -aged toasty and lemon curd notes both on the bouquet and palate.
This wine will complement shell fish salads, asian-spiced steamed fish or chicken pasta dishes. Enjoy our wine in moderation.
