Seven Hills Vineyard Estate Semillon

Seven Hills Vineyard Estate Semillon Wine Details

Description: 100% Semillon from our Estate Seven Hills Vineyard, this wine is packed with complex fruity flavors of peach, melon and lychee, with floral lime and orange blossom aromas. Rich and nutty flavors of crème brulée unfold gracefully and linger on a satisfying finish.

Varietal Definition
A thin skinned grape producing wines of high extract and flavour but soft acidity. In France it combines with Sauvignon Blanc to make the white wines of Bordeaux, most notably the sweet dessert wines of Sauternes and Barsac. Its thin skin leaves it susceptible to the fungus botrytis* the much sought after 'noble rot' in these sweet wine regions. As a varietal it has fared best in Australia, notably the Hunter Valley, where it produces well-rounded wines with lots of tropical fruits and honeyed tones. Here too it is blended with Chardonnay and oak aged to give an added dimension.
