2016 Ni­lah­cootie Semil­lon

Halliday - - Semillon -

Wine­maker: Andy Brown­ing Pale in colour with a gold hue, our semil­lon has aro­mas of melon and cit­rus. Highly com­plex, it is crisp and lively on the palate with a clean and el­e­gant fin­ish.

What do you look for in your semil­lon? The cool cli­mate of our re­gion in North East Vic­to­ria pro­vides ideal con­di­tions. First aro­mas of our semil­lon should be light in ap­ple and vanilla, with del­i­cate flavours of lemon and pear. Through cel­lar­ing, these flavours in­ten­sify to give the wine struc­ture and com­plex­ity.

How do you ap­proach your semil­lon?

Our phi­los­o­phy for cre­at­ing a great semil­lon be­gins with three key el­e­ments: cool cli­mate, nat­u­ral ir­ri­gation and hand pick­ing with great care. Its ver­sa­til­ity sur­passes other whites, with clean fruit, re­fresh­ing flavours that pair per­fectly with chilled seafood and good com­pany – ideal for sum­mer. $28, nil­lah­cootieestate.com.au @nil­lah­cootie_es­tate
