This Semillon has been made with only the “free run” juice – the first run, finest quality juice without the bitterness and phenolics associated with the grape skin. The juice was fermented at low temperatures in a stainless steel tank to capture the inherent delicacy and finesse of this aromatic variety.
2017 Apricus Hill Semillon
A brilliant, clear steely white with youthful green hues.
A vibrant lifted nose of lemons, cut grass and snow peas with hints of blossom and spice.
Crisp lemons and limes lead to a richer mid palate of passionfruit complemented by more complex hints of asparagus and quince.
This wine will improve with up to 10 years careful cellaring. The use of screw cap technology is critical to the longevity of this wine.
