Rolf Binder Christa Rolf Semillon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Christa’s approach to making Semillon is to “bring out the lemon fruit character, make it balanced with no hollows, and make the aroma lift, give it length and use a hint of oak”. The result is a brilliant straw wine with bright green hues. A hugely flavoursome wine enhanced with lemon and lime crispness, hints of vanilla and nuts, followed by a clean fresh finish.

Rolf Binder Wines:
The vines in the vineyard were pruned and trellised in November (Spring), and their long shoots needed to be trained along the trellis. This was a vigorous growing time for the vines, and leading up to this vintage, we saw some of them already producing the small bunches of inflorescences (flowers) that will eventually become fruit.
