'Late Harvest' Semillon 2017

Our ever popular sweet style is luscious, well-balanced & clean. The very fruity bouquet is followed through with a full flavoured palate and soft finish. It is ideal for those who enjoy a light, low alcohol wine; it is especially delicious with desserts.

Winemaker's Notes

The Semillon grapes for our Late Harvest variety were picked on the estate on February 18, 2016. They were brought straight to the winery from the vineyard and crushed, pressed and pumped into stainless steel, refrigerated tanks for settling. The clear juice was then racked to fermenters for alcohol fermentation, being left less time than for the other white varieties so as to produce a slightly sweeter wine by shortening the fermentation time and allowing for an appropriate amount of residual sugar. The wine was then protein and cold stabilized and subjected to a fining procedure. After this, the wine was filtered and was ready for bottling in July 2016. This wine is perfect with soft creamy cheese and fresh fruits, or to be enjoyed with any scrumptious dessert. 223 cases were made.
