2011 Borra Barossa Valley Semillon
12 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka ReviewDon't tell anyone (shhh) but Semillon from the Barossa can be really really good. No one talks about it though, lest that be a distraction from the red wines (we only drink red in the Barossa!). Anyways, this crisp and vital sort of wine has plenty of acidity, plenty of lemon grass and granny smith fruit and a rather lively sort of personality. It's a slightly one dimensional wine perhaps, but an attractive one.
Winemaker's NoteAppearance: Hues of natural tropical greens and abundant golds.
Nose: Fragrant but lifted delicate limey fruits.
Palate: The exotic richness of complex fruit flavours intertwined with ever so delicate palate subtlety.
This Brilliant Semillion and Chardonnay was commissioned by Ernst Kirsten the owner of Block 571 Nicolai Road, Bethany, Barossa Valley, (West facing slope).
Expertly cultivated and nurtured to maturity and harvested by one of Barossa's best Vigneron Contractors, Brett Thompson.
Carefully matured to perfection by one of Barossa's best winemakers, Kym Teusner, achieving a perfect balance on the palate, making these drops highly recommended table wines.
