The Stevens family’s ‘Glen Oak’ vineyard is the southern-most of our Semillon vineyards and features a combination of light sand and red clay soils. The vineyard is dry grown with the earliest plantings being 1911. The 2016 growing season was one that started with great promise, following our wettest winter in nearly a decade. Perfect conditions for budburst and flowering were followed by an unsettled summer consisting of hot days and wild storms. Luckily these weather patterns calmed down into one of the driest Februarys on record. Harvested in the early hours of the morning, the fruit was lightly crushed and pressed before a relatively  cool fermentation. The wine then spent minimal time on yeast lees before being bottled early to maintain its freshness. No oak fermentation or maturation.

Vibrant green colour with a hint of age showing. The wine is rich and complex with citrus, marmalade, cheesy characters. Very European in its complexity and rich character. Drinking well at 4 years of age.

Alcohol – 10.5%
Cellaring – 5+ years

95 Points | James Halliday Wine Companion

95 Points - “A famous wine in the context of the Tyrrell’s Semillon portfolio, a wine of long standing and - curiously - the only single vineyard Semillon to be machine-harvested. It has a distinct citrus core allied with minerally acidity and responds well to lengthy cellaring.”
