100% Semillon from a low yielding, single vineyard of unirrigated vines in Watervale, within the Clare Valley winegrowing region of South Australia.
Fruit was hand-harvested. The wine was 100% barrel fermented with lees stirring every 2 weeks for 3 months. It remained in French oak barriques for a total of 8 months. 40% of the oak was new and the remainder one and two years old.
Aromas of lemon curd, vanilla pod spice and ripe apple. A beautifully textured and layered wine, with delicious apple, apricot and pear fruit combined with excellent oak and barrel ferment character, giving richness and length. Has a satisfying roundness that leaves you wanting more.
