2015 Woodstock Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
The 2015 Woodstock McLaren Vale Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, BVRC32 Semillon clone grown at Woodstock has once again delivered powerful tropical characters. Banana and passion fruit esters leap from the glass and continue to linger on the palate leaving a dry, crisp aftertaste. This combination of grapes and flavors will continue to mingle and evolve with 4-6 years of cool cellaring giving far more dimensions and variables than if bottled as single varietals.
The vintage conditions in 2015 in McLaren Vale, were optimal throughout the growing season allowing for excellent intensity and depth of flavor for both our Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. The Semillon on the estate is crop thinned early in the growing season to concentrate tropical characters. In February the grapes are closely monitored and any sun-burnt or bird pecked fruit removed hours before harvest. When these tropical flavors peak, and just before natural acid is degraded by summer heat, the grapes are machine harvested in the cool of the night to capture freshness. Sauvignon Blanc is processed separately and the two varieties are then blended to ensure a balanced structure and flavor profile.
