Riverina

Botrytis affected Semillon makes much of the world's great and most flavourful wines.

Semillon is harvested from Myall Road vineyard near Griffith, closely cropped to deliver no more than moderate yields. The site was established with cutting edge laser levelling techniques and trellising design, tailor made for premium dessert wines. Following the crush and an overnight cold soak on skins, the unclarified Semillon juices are inoculated through the action of wild and cultured yeasts for a long, slow vinification. Ferments are treated to a variety of temperature fluctuations and exposure to oak. Some components are rack and returned into quality new French oak for ferments, others are filled to barrel for a term of maturation. Two thirds of the wine remains in contact with yeast lees until bottling.
 
Luminous, vibrant pale gold colour. Aromatic and clean, with citrus fruit and fresh hay, dried apricot and lemon spice, marmalade and creme brulee. Medium bodied, luscious palate with creamy apricot kernel and marmalade flavours. Rich fruit sweetness is well balanced by zingy fruit acids. Bimbadgen should be enjoyed now but it offers wonderful ageing potential over several years.

This allows the wine to slowly develop complexity without obvious oak flavours and characters. The final blend is cold stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
