2013 Susanne Semillon
Edgar Vales winemaking notes
From our centenary Old Flat vineyard, this fruit was picked by hand 25th January. Crushed, destemmed and fermented in tank with T306. Post fermentation it was lees stirred for 1 month. Light milk fining in July 2013, filtered and bottled.
This Semillon has an attractive honey bouquet with soft full bodied citrus / lime flavours while the finish is crisp and dry. After extended cellaring this wine will metamorphose resulting in the creamy/toasty characters for which this style is revered.
A wine ideally suited to all seafood and pasta.
