Winery Tasting Notes
The colour is a lively pale green yellow.
The distinctive nose is full of the aromas of honey and citrus with butterscotch overtones.
The palate has terrific fruit generosity, yet remains soft and subtle. It is rich and sweet while the firm acid finish gives the wine structure and balance. The wine displays the classic ripe buttery flavours of Clare Valley Semillon.
Ready for drinking now but could easily be cellared for around 2-5 years.
Made entirely from premium quality Clare Valley fruit selected from our own vineyards at Watervale. The grapes were left on the vines way past our normal picking time until quite dehydrated and botrytised. They were hand picked on the 18th May and the juice enjoyed a long, cool, clean fermentation. Following the fermentation the wine remained on lees for a further 10 months.
