Background

Meerea Park has dabbled in Late Harvest (sweet or semi-sweet) wines over the years, as it is not a focus of the brand. Sweet wines have been made from Traminer, Viognier and now Semillon.

Vintage Notes

The 2019 vintage was an allrounder, delivering great fruit quality, both red and white. The dry vintage was a perfect opportunity to do a late harvest style of wine. Semillon lends itself to sweet wines perfectly.

Vineyard Notes

The ‘Lochleven’ vineyard situated on Deasy’s Road in Pokolbin.

Winemaking

No maturation was undertaken.

Tasting Notes

Orange blossom, lemon zest and lemon butter aromas combine on the nose. The palate is light, fresh and citrus flavoured. Mild sweetness is balanced with zesty acidity.

Food Matches

Fruit and cheese platter.
