Waverley Hills VSC 2014
Blend: 47% Viognier, 22% Semillon, 22% Chardonnay, 9% Pinot Grigio
This is a Mediterranean style wine made with riper grapes, bigger oak vessels and a warm character. White tropical fruit flavours are complemented by fresh butter and nutty aromas. A dried fruit character gives the wine extra complexity with the subtle oak influence. This wine is full and well-balanced on the palate with a lingering silky aftertaste.
Viognier spent 4 months in 2nd fill 500 litre Hungarian oak barrels, including fermentation. 50% of the fermentation was done with natural yeast. Semillon spent 5 months, including fermentation, in 2ndfill 500 litre Hungarian oak barrels. The Chardonnay spent 4 months, including fermentation, in 1stfill 500 litre French oak barrels. The wine was then blended and put back into the barrels for another 15 months.
