2015 Fermoy Estate Reserve Semillon Half Yearly

$45.00

2015 Reserve Semillon

Varietals: 

100% Semillon

Appearance:

Bright, brilliant straw with green tints.

Aroma:

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

Palate:

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.

Cellaring:

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:

12.2%

Acidity:

3.13 pH/ 7.57 TA

Residual Sugar:  

1 G/L

Awards:

  • 95 Points James Halliday Wine Companion 2017
