Don’t let the word “sweet” put you off! This wine has been made to balance on the fine edge of fruit sweetness/residual sugar and a crisp, drying finish. The Semillon component had its ferment stopped, leaving the wine with a modicum of residual sweetness, while the Verdelho component was fermented dry and has the varietal fruit salad traits of the variety. We combined them both for a delicious wine. The fruit -salad and passionfruit bouquet leads to a poised palate with tropical fruit flavours, some residual sweetness and a refreshing sherbet-like acid finish.
A great aperitif or pair it with spicy seafood or Asian dishes. A terrific follow-up to the very popular 2019 Sweet Semillon….
