Tasting Note

GOLD - International Wine Challenge 2019

GOLD - Sommelier Wine Awards 2019

Pale golden with a hint of bright green hues. Fresh limes, grapefruit, lemon blossom and cut grass jump out on the nose giving this wine great complexity. It has a lively fresh citrus palate with ripe lemon & lime notes enhanced by a refreshing acidity and a long lingering finish. This is a seamless wine with rich citrus flavours and a fine acidic structure, hinting at the potential for this wine to cellar with great longevity.

Winemaking

All grapes for this wine were handpicked. At the winery they were de-stemmed, crushed, must chilled and the juice drained quickly from the skins. After a cold natural settling, the clear juice was racked off, warmed and inoculated with natural, neutral yeast for fermentation. The fermentation was slow and cool to retain the exceptional fruit flavour of the vintage. Three weeks after fermentation the wine was filtered before bottling, ensuring the retention of pristine varietal character.

  • 95/100 - Pear slice, some orange, tight spice, bitter edge. Tight spicing elements on the end. Very youthful still.

    • GOLD Medal
  • For team leader Angel Reddin this Gold medal winner offered ‘toast, lemon curd, a whiff of nutty oak and beeswax’ as well as a ‘slight spritz’, while Michael Fiducia of The Royal Automobile Club described it as ‘green-flecked gold with a generous nose of concentrated lime and oily characteristics’, with a ‘light petillance and opulent, oaked palate’. ‘Powerful, full and buttery with tropical fruit and a baked bread, new oak feel,’ thought Jim Bass of Scarlet Hotel, and Annamaria Juhasz of The Fat Duck noted: ‘The nose has a baked bread, yeasty character alongside yellow apples and green pears. It is bone dry, medium bodied and savoury, with a waxy texture. The palate mirrors the nose – lots of bread dough and green fruit.’ She further described it as ‘a good example of an ageing Semillon’.

  • A little more honeyed on the nose than the Lovedale 2013 and more delicate on the palate. Really delicate even though that lime/toast complexity is all there. Perhaps just a little lean on the finish but it’s long and pure.

Customer Reviews

  • Amazing wine!

    This is amazing for lots of reasons. Firstly, it tastes fantastic, of grapefruit, honey, linseed and a toastiness that makes you think it is oaked - but in fact it is not. Secondly, it has been released from the winery ten years old, so it is mature and complex, although it tastes like it could last another ten years if desired. Thirdly, it is amazing value for money - a ten year-old wine in tip-top condition for well under £20 - amazing! It is also lovely that at just 10.5% alcohol, it doesn't thwack you.
