2019 BROKENWOOD HUNTER VALLEY SEMILLON
REGION: Hunter Valley, New South Wales
MATURATION: Stainless Steel
ALCOHOL: 11.0% alc/vol | 6.90 g/L TA | 2.99 pH
WINEMAKING: The fruit was hand harvested, crushed, chilled and pressed immediately. Neutral yeasts were used for the fermentation to preserve the fresh fruit flavors and avoid phenolics. Bottled in May. No oak and no malolactic ferment, only stainless steel to retain the crisp acidity.
TASTING NOTES: A vibrant color with a touch more than usual due to the sunshine. Lovely florals and lemon grass aromas. Mouth filling flavors of pear and lemon pith balancing the zesty acid backbone. The aromas and fruit weight belie the low alcohol and reconfirms that the Hunter Valley produces fruit at optimal ripeness at much lower sugar levels. A classic Hunter Valley Semillon to enjoy now or will age gracefully over many years.
ABOUT BROKENWOOD: A benchmark Australian winery founded in 1970 by Sydney trio Tony Albert, John Beeston and Australia’s leading wine critic, James Halliday, Brokenwood evolved from a weekend venture for these self-professed hobby winemakers into one of Australia’s most reputable wine labels. With the appointment of winemaker, Iain Riggs, in 1982, the company extended its range to include the jewel of the Hunter Valley, Semillon and is known for producing one of the nation’s most iconic single vineyard wines, The Graveyard Shiraz.
