James Halliday – 65/35% semillon/chardonnay. A wine that's driven by crisp, piercing acidity. Bracingly fresh, with all manner of citrus flavours and nuances, racy and linear. More stuffing is needed – time will probably do just that, by plumping out the palate. Jane Faulkner Published 13 August 2021
About This Wine
A white blend of 65% Semillon and 35% Chardonnay.
Lime juice, green apple peel and a little white flowers. Bright green apple crunch and lime citrus from the Semillon grapes, Chardonnay brings some of the stonefruit weight and a pillowy texture from maturation in neutral oak barrels. The bright lime acidity driving the palate length.
Fruit for this wine was sourced from a dry grown block south of Underhill Vineyard, slightly higher in elevation. A Bordeaux inspired white blend of 65% Semillon and 35% Chardonnay.
Both Semillon and Chardonnay were hand harvested, chilled in a cool room overnight and whole bunch pressed. This gives us the finest juice with minimal phenolics or grip. Fermentation in old oak barrels lending weight and texture.
