Schild Estate Late Harvest semillon

Bright straw, pale gold in colour with notes of fresh citrus, orange marmalade and a delicate white flower perfume. A full, round front palate derived from the retention of natural grape sugars and the presence of some nectarine, white peach and floral notes provides a hint of lushness. This is followed by glimpses of subtle oak spice and a clean acid finish which proves some freshness and line to the wine and ensures it retains an element of refreshingness to counter balance the sweetness.

Single vineyard semillon fruit is “cordon cut”in the vineyard allowing the berries to desiccate on the vine for three weeks in order to concentrate flavours. The fruit is then hand harvested and delivered to the winery where some skin contact further helps draw out the flavours before being pressed to tank.
