2017 Margan Semillon
The Fordwich Hill vineyard was planted by Lindemans on the red volcanic soil of the Fordwich Sill in the late 1960’s. Planted to original Semillon stock and farmed using vertical shoot positioning on a low trellis. We crop the vines at around 2.2 tonnes to the acre which is relatively low for this variety. This vineyard produces wines of a richer softer style with intense citrus like flavours because the soil allows us to leave the fruit on for increased ripeness of flavor without loss of acidity. Made in the pure Hunter style with clean juice, stainless steel and neutral yeast.
