'Kellys Farewell' Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2021

A fresh vibrant 60% Semillon and 40% Sauvignon Blanc blend displaying honeydew melon, tropical fruits and grassy aromas. The fleshy mid palate displays intense lime zest with a hint of passionfruit, zippy acidity and a lingering crisp finish.

Winemaker's Notes 

6.31 tonnes of Semillon grapes were picked on the estate on March 8, 2021 at a Bourne of 11.9° . The grapes were brought straight to the winery from the vineyard and crushed, pressed and pumped into stainless steel refrigerated tanks for settling. On March 12, 2021, 5.75 tonnes of Sauvignon Blanc grapes were picked also on the far block at a Bourne of 11.75° and brought to the winery. The clear juice from both varieties was then racked to fermenters for alcohol fermentation. This process took 24 days in the case of the Semillon and 18 days for the Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was then 60%/40% blended and protein and cold stabilised and subjected to a fining procedure. After this the wine was filtered and bottled in July 2021. 582 cases were produced.
