Produced by De Bortoli Wines.
Premium parcels of local fruit were picked at peak flavour ripeness showing concentrated varietal characters. Selected parcels of wine (20%) underwent MLF to soften the edges, create texture and lend character. Both Semillon and Chardonnay components were fermented on French and American oak for up to three weeks to facilitate complexity and palate definition. Select parcels had extended lees contact to add texture and mouth feel to the final blend.

Winery Tasting Notes
Brilliant straw yellow with a hint of green
Lifted quince and citrus with tropical stone-fruit characters, complimented by subtle herbaceous characters and a whisper of toasty oak.
A very focused wine, showing great depth of flavour. An impeccably balanced palate finishes long with crunchy acid and tasty oak.
Excellent drinking on release and will drink well for a further two years.
Sautéed Field Mushrooms with Creamy Polenta or Oysters Naturale.
