Palate

Brokenback Semillon is harvested early to capture the crisp citrus flavours with refreshing acidity. The palate displays elegant mineral elements with refreshing and crisp lime flavours present. The acid structure is vibrant and lively as a young wine, which will soften and gain complexity with age.

Background

The 2016 vintage was an excellent year for white wine making in the Hunter Valley. Early rainfall in Spring was followed by warm, dry conditions during ripening and harvest. This produced limited yields of high-quality fruit displaying excellent fruit flavour whilst retaining natural acidity. Winemaking: After crushing and destemming the must was chilled to 12 degrees. The free run juice was kept separate from the pressings juice, and then cold settled. Once settled the clear juice was racked and inoculated with a selected white wine yeast and fermented at 12-15 degrees for 15 days. At the completion of the alcoholic fermentation the wine was racked off yeast deposits, stabilised, fined and filtered for bottling in 2017.
