About The Wine

This is a super-slurpable version of Semillon from the Yarra Valley with a wild look in its eye.

Picked from an organically farmed vineyard in Dixon's Creek, winemaker Louisa Chalmer left this for over two weeks on skins before sending it to old oak. Over the Winter, a thin veil of flor developed in barrel increasing the nutty/saline complexity that comes with this mercurial yeast.

Semillon from the Yarra Valley doesn't get a lot of the spotlight, but if tasty treats like this keep popping up you might be seeing more f it sometime soon.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Vineyard & Viticulture

From the hotter part of the Yarra Valley, near Dixon’s creek. 38 year-old vines on their own rootstock. Clay-loam soils, with a gentle north-west facing slope. Organic (though not certified) since 2016, with some agroecological practices e.g. ploughing between rows & companion planting. Unirrigated.

Winemaking

Hand-picked at 12 baume, then put directly into a stainless steel VC as unbroken whole bunches, sealed to undergo carbonic fermentation for fourteendays. Gentle punch downs at 14 and 16days-pressed off to older French oak(after 18 days total on skins)for ninemonths, where it formed a thin veil of flor over winter. Hand bottled in early November 2017, no sulphur added.
