2017 Tallawanta Vineyard Semillon

2017 Tallawanta Vineyard Semillon

Hunter Valley, NSW

At 3 years of age on release, this Semillon displays the much desired luminous green tints on a pale yellow background. There is a hint of hay and bees wax on the aroma. Lovely fruit weight with a zesty lime juice acidity to finish. A wine to enjoy now or with medium term bottle age and a great addition to our Single Vineyard 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 Hunter Valley does have a long history of wet years being followed immediately by scorchers; 1997 – 1998, 2002 – 2003, 2004 – 2005 to pick 3 recent ones. The feature of these years is the previous wet autumn, then dry winter and very hot summer. The Semillons from 2017 are superb and now in bottle, the comparison to 2005 is strong. All Semillon blocks were picked by the 3rd of February 2017 and just as well. The weekend of 10th - 12th February saw the temperature hit 44, 47 and 46C. Staff and vines survived with some wonderful wines the result of diligent vineyard and winery work.
Food Pairing
Asian food, any seafood especially fresh shucked oysters.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
