Description

The grapes were hand picked and whole bunched pressed. The juice was cold settled for 36 hours, racked then cool fermented at 15 degrees Celsius. The wine spent a short time on lees to build complexity before filtering and bottling to retain a fresh crisp citrus style so typical of Belford Semillon.

This wine is now pale yellow in colour, with still bright green tinges. clean crisp semillon characters aromas off lemon/lemongrass, with some aged vanilla in the background. The rich citrus fruit flavours are complimented by a grassy herbaceous lift. The palate is long with a soft lingering after taste and a crisp lemon acid finish

Aged semillon pairs well with flathead, butter poached lobster tail and salmon carpaccio.
