About this Wine
Hunter Valley, NSW
Intense citrus and lemongrass combine with bottle age characters of lanolin and toast.
An early and dry vintage of low to moderate crops, resulting in excellent intensity and depth of flavour across varietals.
Concentrated fruits of lemon and lime, beautiful acidity driving through the palate showcasing the amazing length of this wonderful aged style.
Once at the winery the Semillon was destemmed and pressed off skins to stainless steel tank. Here, the juice was cold settled bright before being racked off, warmed and inoculated for fermentation. The juice was fermented with a specific neutral yeast strain chosen to promote the vineyard specific flavours, and fermentation was conducted at cold temperatures to retain those delicate characteristics. Following fermentation, the wine was settled, blended and gently fined before being filtered to bottle.
Released after 7 years, and will reward long term cellaring.

Vineyard. Vineyard. Vineyard.
Lime, lime rind and mineral, very tight and young, fresh clean acidity, tangy, zesty, gently pulpy and pithy with a brightly lit ultra-long finish. Looking very much the goods. Almost certain to become a classic.
