Semillon 2010

Clovely Estate

The Semillon for this wine is picked 10-14 days earlier than the rest of the Semillon in order to capture high natural acidity and low sugar levels. This combination of high acid / low sugar / low pH coupled with grassy, citrus characters produces a wine of relatively low alcohol with excellent ageing ability. The wine is fermented at low temperatures in a stainless steel tank with a neutral yeast strain and bottled as a fresh, zesty youthful wine before being hidden away in the cellar to develop for a few years.

TASTING NOTES: An essential white variety of Bordeaux, France. Semillon is known to produce some of the longest lasting white wines ever made. This wine was harvested with lemony fruit and lively acidity, which has developed in the bottle to produce subtle grapefruit and citrus aromas with a hint of cashew. The palate is rich, and builds honey notes, yet the acidity provides excellent structure and finish.
