2017 Gundog Estate Wild Semillon

Gundog Estate

Hunter

With the Wild Semillon, we push the boundaries of conventional winemaking by fermenting a portion of the wine on skins (like a red wine) using natural or “indigenous” yeast. The aim is to create a very textural and complex style of Semillon that showcases another side of this great wine grape. The 2017 Wild Semillon is very aromatic, offering lemongrass, peach and some herbal tea notes. The palate is bright and fleshy with some residual sweetness there to offset phenolics (tannin) and acidity.

Sourced from multiple vineyards in the Hunter Valley
