2018 Travis Tausend ‘Handful’ Semillon

The name comes from the Nick Cave song ‘Love letter’ and the line goes: “A wicked wind whips up the hill
A handful of hopeful words
I love her and always will”
SW Facing vineyard
Soils: Clay, Ironstone, Quartz
Vines: Vines planted 1994, Spur Pruning
The semillon is picked a couple of days after the berries start showing a pink blush within the flesh. The Fruit is then de-stemmed and a portion of the berries are pressed and then poured over the others in a kind of pea soup like thing. 14 days on skins with us tasting 2 times a day and then the free run is syphoned off to barrels and the pressed juice is then settled in tank for ferment and elevage.
This is the 3rd year we have worked with this vineyard and we continue to see improvement in vines as we work the soils, plant midrow cover crops and utilise sheep in the winter starting this coming year.
