Semillon [reserve] 2016

Attractive light green colour. Nose shows intense citrus, white flowers, honey and spice. The wine is finely focused, complex and well balanced with a crisp acidity. Excellent with mussel soup, salmon, grilled Yellowtail and chicken. Stunning with seared tuna and scallops.

“I remain intrigued by the Estate’s ability to deliver Semillons with a wonderful acidity and pH (all natural). We always try to avoid malolactic fermentation, so that the lemony freshness of the wine is never disturbed and by using tight grained barrels with a blonde toasting, the impression of minerality is reinforced.  Might just be the greatest Semillon on this planet!!"
