Bonfire Block Semillon 2010
Story The Bonfire Block Semillon is named after the dilapidated old vineyard that was razed and replanted to Semillon twenty years ago.
Vintage The 2010 vintage began with high winter and early spring rainfall which helped to maintain a healthy canopy. Dry mild weather during the ripening and harvest period ensured a very high quality from this vintage
Nose Lemon zest, passionfruit, mango cheeks and green tea with layers of flavour from lees aging in 60% new French oak.
Palate A refreshing change, a crisp dry white wine with structure and texture! Citrus and tropical fruits are supported by oak-derived lanolin and oatmeal complexity.
Pairing Pistachio stuffed chicken breast wrapped in prosciutto served with wilted greens and polenta.
