2018 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.

Region Broke Fordwich, Hunter Valley

Winemakers Notes The 2018 vintage was hot and dry and produced outstanding quality fruit from all varieties. The juice was fermented under temperature controlled conditions to ensure freshness and express true varietal characters. No oak was used, typical of  Hunter Semillon and no extended yeast contact.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine has a great combination of flavor and acid with lots of “Lime Splice”, softness and juicy mid palate weight not normally found in Hunter Semillon.
Winemaker Notes
Low yielding ripe, clean fruit at full ripeness was a hallmark of the excellent 2017 vintage. The juice was fermented under temperature controlled conditions to ensure freshness and express true varietal characters. No oak was used, typical of Hunter Semillon and no extended yeast contact.
Food Pairing Notes
Seared yellow fin tuna with garden piccalilli, capers and white balsamic dressing
