Semillon Henty Victoria
The Thomson family share a long history with the agriculture of Victoria's western districts, winemaking has been a family tradition since the nineteenth century. The Thomsons have an eye for the land, in 1975 they settled on a splendid site in Victoria's Henty region and planted vines. In exceptional vintage years, if the quality of harvest merits a pure Semillon wine, the choicest parcels are set aside for an extravagant barrel ferment in French oak and extended term of contact on sedimentery lees. A Semillon of remarkable complexity, elegance and finesse.
Yellow hues. A fragrant bouquet of honeysuckles and lime, chantilly and summery hay, wet pebbly stone and crisp mineral. A deliciously fresh, soft and evenly poised palate, layered with flavours of the orchard, underpinned by firm chalky minerality. The lingering, bone dry finish is filled with evolving fruit characters, bright and crisp.
