Fruit for this Semillon comes off Pokolbin vines planted in 1973. Hand picked then crushed and fermented in stainless steel.
Fresh lemony and citrus aromas spill from the glass. A subtle marigold flower wafts through too. Pale golden in colour, it was picked early to retain freshness (10.5% alc).
The fruit on the palate lacks the vibrancy which I thought the aromas would produce. But although a bit flat, this is an easy drinking wine nonetheless.
Chill ice cold and you could make easy work of it on a hot day.
