Section 1819 - Old Vine Semillon - 2017
Greenock, Barossa Valley
A fresh and lively example of this totally underrated variety which is very much at home in the terroir of the Barossa schist and clay. Lemon and pear drop with stone fruit and flint. Fermented and matured in one single concrete vessel. 130 cases made.
‘Section 1819’ was the original survey name given to a 40 hectare parcel of undulating land which is now home to our beautiful vineyard.
Situated just outside the historic Barossa Valley township of Greenock and containing several hectares of very old Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro and Semillon vines, we’ve breathed new life into the old soil which in return, it has yielded up wines of outstanding quality.
A by-product of our biodynamic management practices has been the return to the farm of the elusive native Australian blue-banded bee, which features on our labels as a symbol of our commitment to working in harmony with nature to create fresh, vibrant wines from healthy vines.
