2015 Tallawanta Vineyard Semillon

2015 Tallawanta Vineyard Semillon

Hunter Valley, NSW

At 3 years bottle age on release in 2018, this wine has the perfect Hunter Valley Semillon colour, pale yellow and luminous green tints. There is a hint of toast, honey nougat flavour and texture with citrus rind aromas and some cut grass in the background. Lovely weight and depth of fruit with lime flavours and soft acid. A great addition to our Single Vineyard Semillon range.

Wine Profile
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
The first Semillon from Brokenwood under the famous Tallawanta Vineyard label. 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 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 fresh shucked oysters.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
