"Harvesting all by hand, the fruit was crushed, chilled and pressed immediately. Neutral yeasts were used for the fermentation, bottled in May. No oak and no malolactic ferment, only stainless steel. The original Tallawanta Vineyard was planted to Shiraz in 1920, the Semillon block was planted in the mid 90’s and is located behind Harrigan’s Hotel. Generally speaking the finest Semillon vineyards are on alluvial flats but this block is one of the exceptions that prove the rule as it is planted on a west facing slope in red clay. This is the third single vineyard Semillon from Brokenwood under the famous Tallawanta Vineyard label. The Hunter Valley enjoyed a stress free vintage in 2018. Low rainfall throughout 2017 meant low foliage and early fruit ripening. Picking commencing on 15th January with all the Semillon blocks being picked by the end of January and saw some higher sugars than normal around the Hunter Valley." - Winemaker Notes
