Background
The ‘Terracotta’ wines get their name from the soils on which the fruit is grown. These red basalt/clay soils are renowned for their low fertility thus reducing the yield of the vine and increasing fruit concentration.
Vineyard Notes
A small parcel of Semillon was harvested early from a high block on the Kindred’s ‘Lochleven’ vineyard in Pokolbin.
Winemaking
2015 was a cool and wet vintage, which suited Semillon very well. Low alcohol and the retention of great natural acidity will be the key to 2015 Hunter Semillons.
Tasting Notes
The nose, while still quite primary and citrus like, has started to exhibit some light toastiness and complexity. There is a slight change in colour, but still has a pale straw hue. The palate is mineraly, tight and focused with citrus zest flavours.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
Medium-Long term. 10+ years
Food Matches
All fresh and cooked seafood dishes.
