Laughing Jack Lillies Cane Cut SemillonLaughing Jack
Style: Dessert Wine (Semillon)
Region: Barossa Valley
Crafted exclusively from old-vines Greenock Semillon, this deliciously fresh, marmalade-y dessert wine was produced by cutting the fruiting cane, ending the sap flow to the grapes. The grapes then dehydrate, which increases the concentration of flavour and natural sugars. After 20 to 30 days the dehydrated grapes are handpicked, their juice pressed out by the basket press and then carefully guided through fermentation over 6 months in seasoned French oak barriques. Following maturation for a further six months in barrel, the wine was bottled - unfined and filtered - in March 2013.
