This complex style of Semillon Sauvignon blanc will match most foods, particularly those with layered flavours and spices.  Although released ready to drink it will reward some long cool cellaring, gaining interesting waxy and lemon rind flavours with age.

Four small parcels were hand harvested over 10 days to achieve balance and complexity. The grapes were crushed and allowed several hours of skin contact before direct pressing into used French oak barriques and allowed to naturally begin fermentation. Once fermentation was finished to dryness the wine spent 4 months resting in barrel on the fermentation lees with no sulphur added, to
give softness and creaminess to the texture. For the first time the wine has undergone malolactic fermentation, to balance acidity and add mouthfeel in this cool vintage.

Winemaker Notes
The 2019 vintage was one of the coolest experienced. A long slow ripening allowed whites to maintain high levels of natural acidity and moderate alcohols. The combined cooler conditions in late January and early February delayed the harvest to a certain degree, but a run of fine weather allowed us to harvest the whites at full flavour ripeness, with the wines in more of a citrus spectrum than tropical fruit this vintage.
