SOLD OUT - Tyrrell's Stevens Semillon 2013 vintage now available.
This undulating vineyard is situated on a combination of light sand and red clay soils.
Good Winter rains with a near perfect Spring set the vintage up well then a cool summer with some rain at the beginning of harvest slowed the ripening slightly. Sugar levels were slightly lower than 2007 with higher natural acid.
Picked on the 16th & 17th of February 2012, and bottled on the 5th of July 2012.
After a relatively cool fermentation, the wine spent a minimal time on yeast lees before being bottled early to maintain its freshness. No oak fermentation or maturation. Winery Notes
