Attractive light green colour. The nose shows delicate citrus, white flowers, honey and spice. The wine is finely focused, complex and well balanced with a crisp acidity. Excellent with
mussel soup, salmon, grilled yellowtail, Thai green curries and smoked chicken salad. Stunning with seared tuna and scallops. Do not hesitate to try it with risotto, match made in heaven!

ORIGIN

The 2019 Semillon came from Korhaan 10/11 blocks or the little bits that was left of it after the wildfires of 2017. The Korhaan 10 was planted in 2003 and 11 in 1993.

 

VINIFICATION

The grapes were picked on 5 March 2019. No crushing or de-stemming was allowed, but the grapes were rather whole bunch pressed for best quality juice. Fermentation took place in 225 liter French oak barrels. The wine was matured in barrel for eight months with regular lees stirrings. Bottling took place on 29 November 2019 and total production amounted to 4046 bottles.
