Description

DESCRIPTION
The grapes were picked on 18 April – about three weeks later than the rest of the Semillon that went into our Semillon/Chardonnay blend. They were crushed and pressed that afternoon prior to cold settling for three days. After racking the juice off the gross lees, yeast was added and fermentation commenced at cool temperatures in a stainless steel tank. The ferment was stopped with about 4% residual sugar by snap chilling and additions of sulphur dioxide. After filtering, we bottled 80 cases in late August.

This is not a botrytised dessert wine, but rather a semi-sweet, late harvest Semillon more in the style of a German Riesling (Spatlese). The grapes were all grown at Mount Panorama Estate Vineyard in the middle of the iconic motor racing circuit. The result is a low alcohol, semi-sweet white wine with good acid levels, perfect for drinking with a cheese and fruit platter or lighter fruit based desserts.
