This Semillon all came from the old vines in the Old Quarter, with plantings dating back to the early 1950s. The geology in this area focuses on heavily fractured schist with clay and iron. NASAA certified organic and biodynamic.
Showing the versatility of Barossa Semillon, this vibrant and lifted wine shows intense lemon and white flower aromas. Fermented in a concrete tulip with just a small portion of skins, the palate is fresh and long with pithy phenolic grip that gives it wonderful drive through the palate.
"Succulent, medium weight white with skinsy chew, great freshness, good gingery spice elements, a lot of honey-lemon-bergamot tea going on too. Wonderful ginger-lemon tea perfume too. Delicious. A lot of width and depth here, it feels like a white keen to go now rather than hang around in cellar. I found this a pretty compelling wine to drink."
