Larry Cherubino - The Yard Pedestal Semillon Blanc 2013Margaret River
The Vintage: A great vintage with classic varietal definition in Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc wines. Textured and soft, with gentle acidity and ripe intense flavours.
The Winemaking: Fruit was harvested at night with crushing and de-stemming. Some skin contact was employed to extract flavour and texture from the fruit. Juice was transferred with high solids to tank. 10% new French oak (for fermentation) and a selection of yeasts were used.
The Wine: Passionfruit and mineral nuances with citrus; accents of lime leaf and juniper. Softly textured with fine acidity. The oak adds fullness to the palate with sweetness and spices.
