Winemaing Notes

The Semillon fruit was harvested later than usual, with elevated sugar levels, to allow for the noble rot Botrytis to set in. The juice was fermented to 9% alcohol volume, preserving approximately 160g/L of residual sugar. The wine was then transferred to seasoned French oak barrels for a six month maturation period, followed by a further 12 month maturation period in stainless steel, before being bottled on 12 January 2010.
