2018 Huntington Estate Semillon Chardonnay
Rounded, generous and fruity.
VINTAGE 2018 has been characterised by intensely dry heat spells followed by short, heavy rainfall. With a lot of hard work from our vineyard team, we picked our fruit very early to beat the heat and secured stunning, evenly ripened fruit with clean, restrained acids.
VARIETY This classic 50/50 Australian blend is great fun with two of our highest producing varieties. The Chardonnay brings a deep, rounded fruitiness to the lean, mineral structure of the Semillon, creating a generously fruity, well balanced and dry white blend.
WINEMAKING Estate grown fruit from our high-yielding vines (50% Semillon, 50% Chardonnay) was pressed for slow fermentation at a cool temperate for 14 days. The Chardonnay spent a month on oak, while the Semillon had a month of lees contact. The varieties were blended on 21/03/18.
IN NOSE Soft melon, ripe peach and straw.
IN MOUTH Generous stone fruit with melon and citrus notes on the back palate. Crisp and fresh, this is a nicely balanced, easy drinking dry white.
CELLAR until 2020+
