Vinden Semillon 2019 (750ml)Vinden Estate
Region: Hunter Valley, New South Wales
Sourced from the Howard family Somerset Vineyard where I once worked; I know this vineyard almost as well as my own. Planted in 1969 over fine clay loam soil, the fruit was hand picked in early February. The juice was fermented on fine solids and extended lees contact was allowed before being bottled. The wine shows the character of the old gnarled vines; zesty, citrus fruit and refreshing acidity. Great early drinking, however patience will be rewarded with cellaring 10+ years.
