Tyrrell's Stevens Single Vineyard Semillon 2013
The Stevens Semillon was harvested from the Glenoak Vineyard owned by Neil Stevens on Marrowbone Road. This undulating vineyard is situated on a combination of light and and red clay soils. harvested in the early hours of the morning when the fruit was at its coolest and then the grapes were very lightly pressed. Fermentation then took place in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures, after which the wine spent a minimal time on yeast lees before being prepared for bottling.
A vibrant, youthful colour with the fresh citrus and floral characters associated with this vineyard with just a hint of toasty development. The palate is dominated by these citrus characters which are now beginning to round out and soften at 5 years of age, yet the acidity is still the backbone of the wine giving it great length and mouthfeel.
