EXPOSURE D E C E MB E R 2016
WI N E OF THE M O NTH 2015 Golden Semillon 2015 Golden Semillon From a 1985 & 1999 planting of Semillon the vines were cordon cut and the fruit allowed to desiccate for three weeks on the vine. After hand picking it was crushed and held on skins for three days to help extract the flavour from the desiccated berries before pressing. Fermentation was long and slow due to the difficult conditions faced by the yeast. The fermentation was stopped and the wine filtered. The wine was then bottled and matured for release - Richard Langford Style Dessert, medium bodied Colour Luminescent straw Aroma Dried pear, apricots and figs Flavour Dried pear and apricot marmalade with balancing acid finish WINNER OF THE ‘BEST SWEET WINE’ AT THE 2016 BAROSSA WINE SHOW

B I G TOYS AT THE WI NERY
Always trying to improve the winery and it’s facilities is high on the agenda here at Elderton, with the belief that it in turn allows us to provide the best service and therefore product to our customers. With vintage getting closer (it will be here before we know it) what better time to ‘do up’ and bitumise the gravel driveway/work area behind our HQ.
