Aravina Estate semillon 2014

INTRO

WINEMAKING NOTES
The fruit for the 2014 barrel fermented Semillon was harvested on 18 February 2014. The fruit was machine harvested in the early hours of the morning during the coolest part of the day. The berries were promptly crushed and pressed and allowed to settle for four days. The clear juice was racked, warmed and inoculated with a selected yeast strain. Once the ferment was underway the wine was transferred to French oak barriques to complete fermentation. The wine was allowed nine months maturation in 40% new oak.The components were blended, fined and filtered before being
sterile bottled.

COLOUR
Light to medium lemon
AROMA
Aromas of fresh lemon and citrus zest with underlying lemon grass and vanillin spice.
PALATE
The palate is dry with a lemon grass flavour. Light to medium-bodied, this wine is tightly structured and displays a vibrant citrus and yellow
plum fruit intensity. The fruit is aptly supported by spicy French oak leading to a persistent finish.
CELLARING
Enjoy now or cellar for up to eight years

Wine Guide 2016

A rather tight and restrained young semillon that delivers its goodies with a high degree of subtlety. The 40 per cent barrel fermentation has contributed to this and provided an extra dimension of depth and palate concentration. Delivers with a lemon essence and subtle grassiness. A little lemon zest and lime brings further life. An excellent wine with some medium-term cellaring potential. SCORE 92/100 CELLAR 7 years
