More info

Rickety Bridge Semillon grapes were hand harvested at 22.9 ºB into small crates.

Winemaking:

Fermentation took place in the small French oak barrels, 20% new and 80% older barrels using a naturally occurring yeast. The must was fermented between 14 – 17 ºC and the lees was stirred up daily for three months and then twice every week for the next 7 months thereafter. Sulphur was added only after 9 months, just before bottling.

Tasting Note:

Lime and apple aromas layered with nuances of honeyed beeswax. The full, rich palate of honey and citrus is perfectly balanced with well-integrated oak notes, minerality and a delightful lingering creamy finish.

Maturation Potential:

Already accessible, this wine has a great ageing potential for up to at least 10 years from harvest.

Food pairing: Red Thai chicken curry, roast pork, seafood, shellfish, roast chicken, Paella. A very versatile variety which can be paired with many dishes.
