Another returning member to the Forrest stable. 2021 provided such a slow, intense ripening that shows in this Semillon. Beautifully balanced by the river gravels minerality and classic Semillon acidity, this wine looks fresh and approachable now but will make a beautifully aged Semillon if you can stash it away for ten years. Only 200 bottles were produced.

Vineyard Sites

Native Country: Bordeaux, France
Plantings Worldwide: 50000 acres/20000 hectares in France, Australia, South Africa, Greece, Argentina, Chile, USA, and New Zealand.
Lemony, high acidity and excellent cellaring potential, Semillon is not a common variety in NZ. Sour and harsh when unripe, beautifully fruity and round when right.

Vinification

The grapes were machine harvested, then crushed, pressed and put into old oak barriques for primary and secondary malolactic fermentation, prior to 10 month yeast autolysis maturation.
