Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Rosily vineyard is planted on a gentle hill sloping down to a tributary of the Willyabrup brook, which flows in the winter months. The soil types on the property vary from deep gravelly loams, to coarse gravels, to lighter sandy soils over a clay base. This soil diversity (in conjunction with Margaret River’s climate and our north facing aspect) gives Rosily Vineyard the ability to produce vastly different styles of wine, all from within the 80 acre site. The Semillon is planted on the steepest sloping block on the vineyard, where the gravelly hill top of the Chardonnay and Cabernet drops away to east into deeper alluvial soils.
Production Notes
A varietal Semillon is only produced at Rosily in years where both the quality warrants, and when sufficient amounts are harvested relative to the Sauvignon Blanc to satisfy our SSB requirements and leave a little Semillon spare.
Winemaker Notes
This wine was made in a similar style to our Chardonnay, with barrel fermentation and maturation.
