2014 Wandoo Semillon

The Wandoo Semillon is produced from a single block of estate grown fruit planted in 1987.  Half of the free run juice is fermented in French oak and the other half in stainless steel.  After 5 months on lees, the components are blended before bottling.

Growing Region: Frankland River, Western Australia 

A mild, dry winter and a spring with ample rain, was followed by a warm, even summer, interspersed with timely rainfall events. This presented us with early flavour development, providing an intense varietal profile whilst retaining the freshness of the natural acidity.

Brilliant pale gold with green flecks.

Vibrant intense flavours of lemon curd, toasty savoury spice, hints of marmalade with a pithy texture and bright flinty acidity.

Ready to drink now, this wine will also gain complexity over the next eight to ten years with careful cellaring.
