The grapes for our Aged Release Semillon are sourced from the sandy creek flats of the historic Steven vineyard.The fruit was hand picked and then it was then gently whole bunch pressed to tank before a slow, cool fermentation.
Starting to display complexities of an aged Semillon; delicate citrus characters combine with lanolin and chamomile to come through on the palate. An excellent line of acidity adds to good length of flavour.
Low yields, small bunches and exceptional fruit profile were the hallmarks of the 2018 vintage.
A good growing and picking season resulted in high quality fruit coming off our vineyards.
The natural acidity will hold this wine in good stead for the future, and should drink beautifully for the coming 15+ years.
Perfect with freshly shucked Port Stephens oysters with finger lime. Add a splash of semillon on top of the oysters and a big splash in your glass for maximum enjoyment!
