Our Semillon is harvested from old vines planted on their own roots in 1968 at Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley. It is this deep and fine alluvial sandiness that makes the vineyard resource so significant – the vines consistently produce the purest and brightest signatures of Hunter Semillon. The Semillon was harvested then crushed, chilled and pressed immediately. Fermentation occurred using a selected pure yeast culture in stainless steel tanks, at cool to cold temperatures to maximise and retain varietal freshness.
Sourced exclusively from Keith's own 50 year old unirrigated vines in his Hunter Valley vineyard at Hermitage Road in Pokolbin. It beams with delicate, zesty, lemon and lime-fruit plus fine perfumes and flavours of fresh cut lemongrass and white flowers. A taut, wonderfully crisp style with citrus-zing energy and notable length, all the hallmarks of this classic Hunter white.
Perfect with light and delicate fish dishes, prawns and freshly shucked oysters.
