2014 Aged Release Semillon

Light alluvial soil on yellow clay creates wines from the Semillon variety of lean citrus austerity. Our Aged Release Semillon has been made in a very pure style to reflect the traditions of the area. Strength of acid and line and length are the keys to the ageing style and this wine has been specifically made to have this covered. 5 years of bottle maturation allows both the young wine and the older wine to be seen in the one glass.

Colour  Pale straw

Nose  Lemon Sherbet, lime zest,

Palate  Lemon Grass, Grapefruit, lime sorbet

Tasting Notes  Upon opening this, it is immediately evident why we release this Semillon 5 years after bottling. It has a wealth of complex flavours, a soft but lingering acidity and a never-ending finish.

Food Match  King fish cerviche with pickled cucumber, avocado and dill

Cellaring  Another 10 to 15 years +

Winemakers Notes  

The grapes for this Semillon were handpicked in the cool of the morning from vines yielding less than one tonne to the acre. The wine has been made in the traditional low sugar manner that produces wines with great ageing potential. The juice was fermented under temperature controlled conditions to maintain all of its fruit characters.  True to Hunter tradition, no oak is used.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
At the bottom end of our Timbervines Vineyard the red clay becomes a red sand clay and this brings the opportunity of making a more austere style of ageing Semillon. Named the Francis John block in memory of Andrew's father. Our Aged Release Semillon has been made in a very pure style to reflect the traditions of the area. Strength of acid and line and length are the keys to the ageing style and this wine has been specifically made to have this covered. 5 years of bottle maturation allows both the young wine and the older wine to be seen in the one glass.
