2015 Fermoy Estate Reserve Semillon Half Yearly


2015 Reserve Semillon


100% Semillon


Bright, brilliant straw with green tints.


Intense, rich aromas of preserved lemon, spiced poached pear, cinnamon, vanilla bean and charred cedar wood.


Rich and full-bodied, this wine is a seamless marriage of the bright lemon and pear primary fruit flavours combined with the complexities of barrel ferment in new French oak – grilled nuts, crème brulee and toasted spices of star anise, clove and cinnamon.  A clean and precise, cool-climate acid line provides structure, definition and palate length.

Oak Detail:

Ferment and 2 months maturation in 100% new French oak barriques (Bordeaux coopers), the wine was then blended to tank and returned to older French oak for a further 7 months maturation.


The wine is of interest now because of these intensities of aroma and flavour, but will continue to evolve over the next 5-8 years as secondary characters come to the fore.

Alcohol volume:



3.13 pH/ 7.57 TA
