Torbreck Woodcutters Semillon 2020

A traditional variety that takes great pride in Barossa vineyards,
the acidity and medium body of Semillon working well with
fine acids, fresh citrus notes of lemon and lime juice and kaffir
lime leaf. The palate is tangy with acidity and cleansing to the
finish. Either as a fresh young wine or aged for up to 10 years
to reveal brioche and lemon curd pastry like notes. The Lemon
butter complexities are a real delight from 5-10 years.

Torbreck Woodcutters Semillon 2020

Semillon has always found a natural home in the Barossa.
It was one of the early white wine grape varieties planted by
the first settlers around 160 years ago and the Mediterranean
climate and careful farming has created a heritage of old, low
yielding Semillon vineyards. With the use of an age-old, robust,
pink-skinned Madeira clone, found mainly in the Barossa, the
Woodcutter’s - Semillon is reminiscent of the savoury white
wines found in the central and southern regions of France.
VINTAGE
Strong winds at flowering at the beginning of the growing
season reduced berry and bunch count in many vineyards. The
difficult seasonal conditions continued up to harvest- a dry
winter and spring were followed by very hot and dry December
and January. 2020 was a difficult season to manage for both
grower and winemaker with yields much lower than
anticipated. Older vineyards with deeper roots remained
steadfast under these conditions and produced small volumes
of deeply concentrated wines from the lower yields. Semillon
and Viognier were the starring whites, with delicate flavours
and aromas. While the yields have been small, the overall
quality has created deeply coloured and textured wines that
resonate their place of origin.
