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 

Vintage:
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.

Colour:
Brilliant pale gold with green flecks.

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

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

Alcohol:
11.5%
