“A vintage that had it all. The earliest I have ever picked Semillon is this one, on the 9th January 2020. I was still trying to shake off the Christmas cheer, grapes wait for no one. Being from a drought year the fruit showed great concentration of flavour and highly lifted aromatics. I really enjoyed watching this wine evolve through to bottle, the ferments esters bouncing around the winery were absolutely stunning. Limited in quantity so be sure to get in quickly.” – Richard Done, Winemaker
