100% Semillon from bush vines planted in 1932
Our 88 year old dryland Semillon vineyard produces the most interesting of flavours. Fermented and matured in a combination of old and new barrels it was left on the lease for a year, with a process of bâtonnage – the weekly stirring of the lease – developing its creamy character. It has a big mouthfeel, nutty and with glycerine, lanolin and toasty vanilla. A real ‘winter’ wine enjoyed in front of the fireplace as the rain pelts down. It can still age some 3-4 years.
