Winery Tasting Notes
Semillon 74% Sauvignon Blanc 26%
It has a vibrant mid yellow colour.
The nose shows fragrant tropical aromas with a background of toffee and lanolin starting to develop.
The palate opens with pineapple and gooseberry fruit flavours and evolves to creamy butterscotch, toffee and nuts. Weight is full and round with hints of clove and lemongrass lingering on the finish. This is a wine of substance with clean balanced acidity and generous proportions.
Serve lightly chilled. Its Semillon dominant and starting to develop wonderful secondary characters making it a perfect complement to Tempura battered Prawns or golden roasted chicken with creamy gravy and baked potatoes.
This wine is delicious drinking now and will continue to mellow in bottle for another 2 – 3 years as the characteristic lanolin, marmalade and butterscotch flavours intensity.
Pan Terra Reserve wines are hand selected and represent outstanding expressions of variety, vintage and region. Vintage 2008 was warm and dry allowing the Semillon to reach peak ripeness. 30% was then aged in barrel for additional complexity and body weight. The final blend was then matured in tank for a further 24 months before bottling.
