2019 Petit Lot Semillon


40 cases produced

The first vintage of Semillon that we have produced in over a decade, showcasing this underrated and age worthy variety. The vines reside on our Home block, planted there to take advantage of the free draining soils ensuring intensity of flavour. The Semillon is planted with a North South orientation, the fruit being shaded allowing for greater retention of minerality and natural acid. The soil consists of gravelly loam over clay and is naturally high in minerals. The pristine fruit was handpicked at first light with a natural ferment beginning spontaneously. Matured in both oak and clay vessels the finished wine reveals the high mineral content of the soil with dewy slate evident on the nose, grassy tones and citrus. Lemon verbena imbues the palate alongside honeysuckle and white florals with an oyster shell minerality and fine acid backbone ensuring the cellaring potential of this wine.
