The grapes for this wine come from the Belford vineyard owned by the Elliott family, situated 15km north/north-west of the Tyrrell’s winery. Planted in 1933, the vines are dry grown and planted on their own roots.

Very fine sandy loam, almost talcum powder in consistency.

A late spring which led into cooler conditions throughout November and early December with good rain. This lead up left us with above average crop levels which ripened well with the long, cool weather conditions in January. Picking began one week later than 2011.

The grapes were hand picked then lightly crushed before a relatively cool fermentation in stainless steel. After a short period on gross lees, the wine was racked and left to mature in stainless steel until bottling. A yield of 2.5 tonnes per acre was achieved, picked on the 15th February 2012.

The last of the semillon picked, this wine has a fuller palate commonly associated with the Belford vineyard, with great fruit intensity and a slightly higher acid intensity than normal years due to the cooler growing conditions.

The 2012 vintage has been awarded 4 gold, 4 silver and 7 bronze medals. Winery Notes
