A favourite of ours and a variety with a pedigree that goes back well over a hundred years, our 2018 Semillon comes from a single vineyard that lies adjacent the old Great Northern highway that used to pass through the Clare Valley. Eastern facing and with high natural rainfall in the most elevated part of Watervale, a single parcel of fruit was harvested in mid – February, quickly crushed and chilled before fermenting cool in a selection of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads. The naturally occurring lemon and tropical flavours further enhanced by twice-weekly battonage for six months. Characters perfectly in balance with the wines naturally occurring acidity giving a cellaring potential of at least fifteen to twenty years.
