Saronsberg CWG Semillon 2008

The Semillon was hand harvested in the early morning, force cooled to 4 degrees C and then de-stemmed. The mash was allowed to cold soak for 12 hours and was then pressed. The free-run juice was settled, racked and then fermented in barrel at 16 – 18 degrees C until dry. The wine was left on its gross lees for 12 months, racked and returned to barrel and topped with Sauvignon Blanc. After a total of 20 months in a new French oak barrel, the wine was bottled and bottle aged for another 24 months prior to release. Tasting Notes: Subtle lanolin, litchi, delicate floral and lime flavours in combination with integrated oak are supported by a full-bodied and rich palate, structured mouth feel and a fresh finish. This wine is packed in wooden boxes.
