Tasting notes

A variety that the Clare Valley does so well and one with a pedigree going back well over a hundred years, the 2017 Great Northern Road Semillon is a single vineyard wine grown adjacent the old Northern highway in Watervale that passed through the Clare Valley many years ago. A much cooler year, the fruit was harvested around 12.0 Baume and barrel fermented and matured in a collection of new and one-year-old French hogsheads, the wines personality and complexity was further enhanced by the practice of twice weekly bâtonnage (lees stirring). The flavours of cut grass, lemon juice, tropical notes feature prominently on the nose and palate and are perfected matched to the subtle smoky French oak char and distinct creaminess.
