2020 Watervale Semillon

2020 Watervale Semillon

On the back of a dry 2019 growing season, the 2020 growing season was again very hot and dry. Limited soil moisture and poor fruit set due to extreme weather at flowering lead to a 40% reduction in yields from the previous season across our vineyards.

Tasting Notes

  • Colour – Light green straw.
  • Aroma – Fresh vibrant aromatic notes of quince, ripe citrus fruits, lemongrass, tropical notes with floral undertones.
  • Palate –  Mid weighted, textural palate showing good acid drive, with ripe citrus, stone fruits and tropical nuances. The citrus like acidity gives a well-balanced palate leading to a crisp, clean dry finish.

February saw 50mm of rain and mild conditions, this helped to maintain natural acidity and was a blessing for our vineyards leading up to harvest. Fruit quality was excellent. Red varieties have great colour, concentration, richness and ripe tannins. White varieties have excellent flavours, purity and balance.
