Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The Semillon fruit was particularly flavoursome this year, displaying clearly defined fig and honey notes. Full sugar ripeness was matched with great natural acidity, perhaps due to the combination of a dry growing season (the third driest on record at Rosily) and the cooler than average ripening season through January and February.
Winemaker Notes
Unlike the standard Rosily SSB, this sulphite free wine is not oaked, and has undergone malolactic fementation prior to bottling. While fanatical avoidance of oxygen in the winemaking process has maintained a lively freshness in the wine, the malolactic fermentation also provides a smooth butteriness and an extra layer of interest
