Vinification
Harvesting all by hand, the fruit was crushed, chilled and pressed immediately. Neutral yeasts were used for the fermentation, bottled in May. No oak and no malolactic ferment, only stainless steel.
Winemaker Comments
If we have said it once, we have said it a million times, the word normal just doesn't exist for the Hunter Valley. There was a three week turn around in picking compared to 2014, and most Semillon was off in the last week of January. It was a very dry winter of 2014 with only 54mm of rain from May to July. A very good budburst and spring, but then a cold and wet December resulting in quite large canopies and disease pressure. Thankfully all of our Semillon is handpicked and the vineyard team did a great job of getting clean, sound fruit in. This vintage is stylistically on song, but a smaller production overall of Semillon than usual. All fruit was harvested before the damaging East Coast low wreaked havoc on the Hunter Valley.
Food Pairing
Asian food, any seafood especially freshly shucked oysters.
Drink
This Semillon will hold its freshness for many years and has all the boxes ticked for long term aging.
