We typically harvest this portion early to retain much-needed balance. nd the fruit will remain in stainless steel throughout the fermentation and stabilizing period. The Sémillon from our beloved Double River Estate Vineyard was harvested at a much riper stage, to ensure richness, complexity and texture in the end result.
The Sémillon started primary fermentation in stainless steel and finished in neutral French oak. Both distinctive lots remained on the lees for an additional 2 months after fermentation end enjoyed weekly battonage to secure expressiveness and definite layers.
The beautiful balance between fruit and acidity makes this wine very approachable yet sophisticated and perfectly accompanied with food. Sushi, grilled halibut on the coals with spring greens, roasted chicken with lemon and herbs, or a triple cream cheese will be a great pairing.
