2016 Huntington Estate Late Harvest Semillon

AUD $40.00 inc. gst

Decadent, summery and honeyed.

VINTAGE 2015 was a return to more “normal” conditions – warm but not too hot, dry but not drought, with timely rainfall.

WINEMAKING  Fruit from Block 5 Semillon was left on the vine to ripen and rot (nobly of course!). 10T worth of table wine grapes left on the vine to shrivel to approx 1T in weight as they ripened to 24 baumé, yielding around 800L of unappealing looking thick brown juice. The miracle of wine-making transforms this unpromising juice into the nectar of the gods. Add nearly 4 years of bottle age and there’s something very special in the bottle as this wine begins its long, slow journey to develop in bottle!

IN NOSE A deep gold, in nose the wine has beautiful aromas of apricot, honey & marmalade.

IN MOUTH The wine sings with flavours of summer - ripe peaches and quince, honey and orange. It has a decadent texture, smooth, mouth-filling with a long, crisp finish. Delicious.
