2016 The Box Seat Semillon


100% Semillon 100% Barrel matured
100% Estate grown - Geographe

Fruit was picked for a balance between ripeness and classical grass and citrus characters. Following crushing the juice was transferred to a mixture of new and aged French oak barriques for barrel fermentation. Following the completion of ferment, the wine was racked and returned to barrel for the balance of the 18 months of maturation. Finally individual barrels were selected for final blending in stainless steel prior to bottling. The oak adds complexity whilst maintaining the fresh fruit characteristics. A fragrant mix of stone fruit and citrus with lifted cut grass and hints of toasty oak. An elegant, fine Semillon with persistence and balance. Will gain in complexity by cellaring for 8 years
