Tasting Notes

Oak Valley Sémillon expresses aromas of fresh lime zest, orange blossom and white peach. Lemon curd and vanilla on the palate, along with lemon sherbet and a lingering white peach finish. A fresher style than the previous vintage, racy and tight, lending itself to ageing. Brilliantly refreshing and a fine example of cool climate Sémillon.

About The Harvest


Fruit is harvested from a south-facing block (0.58ha) situated in the mountain vineyard planted in 2004 at an elevation of ±420m. Grapes are harvested in the morning.

Harvest dates: 9 March 2014

In The Cellar

Bunches are hand sorted, de-stemmed and taken straight to press. The Semillon is settled and underwent inoculated fermentation in tank. The wine was then transferred to barrel maturing on the lees in 2nd and 3rd fill French oak for 9 months.
