Grown at Rising Vineyards in St Andrews, Nillumbik Yarra Valley.
Whole bunch pressed to used french oak barrels for natural fermentation. Matured on lees for 10 months, then bottled without fining or filtration.
Thank you to Neil and Elizabeth Roberts.
Sourced from the Rising Vineyard in the Yarra Valley, this spends 10 months in oak, and on lees (only stirred once). Neither element is overt though, the crisp citrus acifity of Semillion is retained and helps the flow easily across the palate. Lees and oak give the texture a little breadth and creaminess but it is well restrained within the structure. It is delicious and makes you want to come back for another glass, which at the end of the day is fundamental criteria for any wine.
