MATURATION
After crushing and destemming the must was chilled to 12ºC. The free run juice was kept separate from the pressings juice, then cold settled. Once settled the clear juice was racked and inoculated with a selected white wine yeast and fermented at 12-15ºC for 15 days. At the completion of the alcoholic fermentation the wine was racked off yeast deposits, stabilised, fined and filtered for bottling in June 2011.

VINEYARD / SOIL
Our Semillon is grown on well-drained sandy loam soils located in the heart of Hunter Valley wine country N.S.W. The vineyard has drip irrigation installed on each vine row to ensure vine health and consistency of quality. The crop yields are relatively low, producing excellent concentration of fruit flavour. The Dairy Hill block consistently produces the best Semillon every year.

NOTES
This wine captures the crisp citrus flavours with refreshing acidity. The wine is tangy and vibrant whilst young displaying pure Semillon fruit aromas of lemon blossom and lime. The palate is intensly flavoured with citrus, but yet elegant in style with balanced acidity and great length.
Cellaring: Whilst superb young, this wine will develop complexity after careful cellaring up to 10 years.
