Semillon Sauvignon Blanc Yarra Valley Victoria
Three quarters Semillon, the balance in Sauvignon Blanc, from fruit selectively hand picked and sorted off dry grown estate vines at Gruyere. Grapes are gently crushed to encourage skin contact and infuse flavour, batches are manually basket pressed with minimal settling time before filling to seasoned French oak barriques for primary ferments and a rich course of malolactic, followed by eleven months maturation. A generously proportioned Semillon Sauvignon of ample palate weight and profound generosity of oak developed fruit.
Straw yellow hues. A fruit salad of aromas, crisp green apple and tangy pineapple. The palate dominated by a citrus backbone and fleshed out with the texture of oak barrel ferments and malolactic. A textural wine of significant weight and length driven by an acid tang that would stand up to rich gourmandise.
