Description

A white blend of 80% Semillon and 20% Chardonnay.

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

Cellaring: A bright and refreshing young wine on a summer’s day, all zingy and zesty. The real beauty here will come from some cellar maturation. The magic of Semillon will shape this with time into a toasty and deeply layered mature wine. Rewarding careful cellaring for up to 10 years.

Vintage 2020: A challenging year began with unstable weather during flowering resulting in a poor fruit set. A dry summer followed with devastating bushfires in many viticultural regions but lucky for us, the Yarra Valley was spared this time. Late January brought a drop in temperature and regular rainfall. The wines from 2020 have a lot of grace, a cooler season, and light crop presents in their fragrance, medium weight, and bright acid line.

Review

A very pale lemon-to-lime tint in the glass. A nose of lemon tarts and kaffir lime. A solid forward core of citrus and stone fruits, layered with crushed rock and lime leaf elements. There's a touch of weight to it but it has ample acidity to match that texture. Great drive and length, with a hint of phenolic grip drying the finish.

Tasting Profile

Palate
“65/35% semillon/chardonnay. A wine that’s driven by crisp, piercing acidity. Bracingly fresh, with all manner of citrus flavours and nuances, racy and linear. More stuffing is needed – time will probably do just that, by plumping out the palate.” – Jane Faulkner, 2022 Halliday Wine Companion.
