Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A young, bright wine that is showing classic lemon and kafir lime aromas along with silken flavours dominated by a mix of juicy lemon, gooseberry and kiwifruit. Great weight, texture and acid balance make this wine a pleasure to pair with fresh West Coast seafood.
Vineyard Notes
All fruit was destemmed, light crushed and pressed into stainless steel settling tanks. After the solids had settled for 24 hrs, 92% of clarified juice was transferred into stainless steel tank and 8% directly to new French Oak barrels for a long (28 days), cool (16 C) fermentation. This combination provides a rich and textural mouth feel without having any obvious oak wood burying the fruit flavours. At the completion of alcohol fermentation the wine was batonage lees stirred weekly for 2 months to add texture and richness to the wine. The two wines were then blended, stabilized, filtered and bottled in the spring of 2013.
Winemaker Notes
While typically quite austere in its youth with dominant notes of citrus and grassiness, Semillon can bottle age magnificently and butterfly into a full-bodied wine that has notes reminiscent of honey and nuts.
Food Pairing Notes
Sushi, crab salad, scallops or oysters.
