2018 Dry White Wine No. 1

$55.00

Crunchy green apple freshness and lemon citrus poise from the Semillon grapes, minimal skin contact lending ginger spice, some of the weight from maturation in old, neutral oak barrels as well as the Chardonnay fruit. The bright acidity driving the palate length.

Aroma & Bouquet: Fresh green apple and a waxy preserved lemon peel with fresh box hedge lift.

Palate: Crunchy green apple freshness and lemon citrus poise from the Semillon grapes, minimal skin contact lending ginger spice, some of the weight from maturation in old, neutral oak barrels as well as the Chardonnay fruit. The bright acidity driving the palate length.

Hand harvested, the Semillon was crushed before pressing for some skin contact to extract flavor from the skins, the Chardonnay whole bunch pressed before juice transferred for fermentation in old oak barrels lending weight and texture.

Region: Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia.

Varietals: A white blend of 70% Semillon and 30% Chardonnay.

Vines: Fruit for this wine was sourced from adry grown block south of Underhill Vineyard, slightly higher in elevation.  A Bordeaux inspired white blend of 70% Semillon and 30% Chardonnay.

Cellaring: Has sufficient generosity & texture to be approachable as a young wine but will reward careful cellaring for up to 10 years.

Vintage 2018: A cool and wet spring and summer delayed budburst and encouraged good canopy growth and good fruit set before summer arrived and thereafter the season turned dry.  Picking over a busy 6 weeks delivering grapes with generous flavour development.
