Brokenwood ILR Reserve Semillon CONFIRM VINTAGE

The magic of Hunter Semillon on display, texture and weight from a wine that sees no oak, only ever released in the finest years, ILR Reserve is a beauty.

Neutral yeasts are applied and the juices are inoculated for vinification in fermenters, unwooded and unoaked without any malolactic.
