Picardy Pemberton 'Boise' Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

$25.00
Picardy produces two blends of Sauv Blanc and Semillon. This is their homage to the Bordeaux version which sees partial barrel fermentation, some malolactic fermentation and lees stirring to build complexity and texture. The wine is then aged for 9 months, half in oak, half in stainless steel. This is complex, rich and nutty, spiced and stone fruity with just a suggestion of fluffy tannins from the oak.

Bill, Dan and team make very limited quantities of superb wines with an emphasis on elegance. They are definitely designed to age and have a fruit intensity that belies their initially genteel appearance. The level of attention in the vineyard is staggering as Matt’s creaking back can attest. Matt was vineyard serf/assistant winemaker at Picardy from 2000-2003.

Sémillon is a golden-skinned grape used to make dry and sweet white wines, most notably in France and here in Australia. The history of the Sémillon grape is hard to determine. It is known that it first arrived in Australia in the early 19th century and by the 1820s the grape covered over 90 percent of South Africa's vineyards, where it was known as Wyndruif, meaning "wine grape". In Australia Sémillon is widely grown in Australia, particularly in the Hunter Valley north of Sydney, where for a long time it was known as "Hunter River Riesling".

In Australia

Sémillon is widely grown in Australia, particularly in the Hunter Valley north of Sydney, where for a long time it was known as "Hunter River Riesling". Four styles of Sémillon-based wines made there: a commercial style, often blended with Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc; a sweet style, after that of Sauternes; a complex, minerally, early picked style which has great longevity; and an equally high quality,dry style, which can be released soon after vintage, as a vat or bottle aged example. (Hunter Valley Semillon is never matured in oak.) The latter two
