Ripe Semillon is made sweeter on the vine by cutting the canes and allowing the grapes to dehydrate and the sugars to concentrate for 30 days. Hand-picked and pressed into old French puncheons then wild fermented”
^^ Is how this newly released Grace Farm 2018 Cane Cut Semillon is made.
It’s the first time Margaret River producer Grace Farm have used their Semillon to make a dessert wine.
I decided to team this 500ml bottle up with some Szechuan pork dumplings. It was a delicious match which I want again soon!
The wine is a light golden shade with perfect crisp clarity. On the nose it makes me think of preserved lemon, floral perfume, lemongrass and a mineral/chalky-ness. In the mouth, it’s that perfect balance of sweet fruit and acidity. Think honeyed fruit salad and sweet preserved orange/marmalade. $35 a bottle.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
