Bordeaux meets the Loire Valley in this bold and concentrated blend of Semillon and Chenin blanc from the dry-grown Estate vineyard in Baskerville. Fermentation by indigenous yeast of the Semillon component occurred in our imported Georgian qvevri, which are buried inside the winery for natural temperature control. Chenin blanc was fermented separately in seasoned French oak barriques before blending and bottling without fining and filtration.
The Lemongrass and dried herb aromas of Semillon are immediately apparent, with orange blossom highlights. Concentrated flavours of lemon curd taper to a long and lively finish. This wine has been bottled without fining or filtration and a small edible sediment may naturally precipitate in the bottle.
