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.

Harvest date: 4th February 2012

This wine is now golden in colour, with still bright green tinges. More rounded, toasty aged semillon characters 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 hint of lemon acid finish

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