CANE CUT SEMILLON
Made from Semillon grapes, the vines had their canes cut when the flavours were ripe and the fruit left to slowly ripen. The result is a powerful and seductive dessert wine of great pleasure.
This wine offers layers of rolling fruit woven with savoury, earthy flavours playing off a rich Grenache fruit edge and long drying tannins.

AromaAn array of aroma; fragrant floral notes, rosewater with lifted musk and spicy lavendar bath salts.
PalateAfter 12 months in bottlw, this wine is still austere with great freshness and minerality. Musk, lemons, and subtle bath salts dominate with good acid and persistence, balanced with subtle talc notes.
The grapes were destemmed, crushed and pressed gently in an airbag press. Only free run juice was utilised. After cold settling the clarified juice was cold fermented in stainless steel to dryness. The wine was fined and filttered, then bottled early to capture the wines freshness and vibrancy. Released after 12 months in bottle, this one will be great for summer and many years to come.
Under good cellaring condition this wine will age 10+ years.
