Brokenwood Wines

2018 Late Picked Semillon

2018 Late Picked Semillon

Hunter Valley, NSW

Beautiful green/yellow colour with great aromas of fresh apple and tropical fruits. These carry to the palate and are given a bit more prominence due to the slightly riper grapes. The sweetness is balanced by the fresh apple acidity that runs through to the finish. With 12.5% alcohol, this is a refreshing and easy drinking wine.

Wine Profile
Vinification
Brokenwood has quite a history of Late Picked styles starting in 1983 and we have used Semillon, Gewurztraminer from the Hunter and Riesling from McLaren Vale. The fruit is allowed to get a bit riper and then the fermentation stopped when there was a perfect balance between acid, sugar and alcohol. Fermentation in stainless steel and using cultured yeast.
Winemaker Comments
The Hunter Valley enjoyed another stress free vintage in 2018. Low rainfall throughout 2017 meant low foliage and early fruit ripening. Picking commencing on 15th January with all the Semillon blocks being picked by the end of January and saw some higher sugars than normal around the Hunter Valley.
Food Pairing
Fresh fruit and sunshine or an apple flan.
Drink
A vibrant wine style best consumed over the short term.
