Winery / Brand: Temple Bruer
Region: Riverland, SA
Grapes: Chardonnay, Semillon
Michelle says: "A new release from Temple Bruer in their Preservative Free range. This Chardonnay Semillon is a welcomed alternative to the only other white in the range, the Verdelho. Pale straw in colour with pink highlights, the nose entices with citrus, pear and some tropical notes, pineapple perhaps. The palate is fresh with bright acid and a slightly viscous texture (from the malo fermentation) revealing more tropical and stonefruit flavours. It finishes dry with a gentle grip that cleanses your palate. Great drinking, especially at the modest alcohol of 11.5%."

VINEYARD

The Riverland had an exceptional vintage, low disease pressure and a late cool ripening period, coupled with low to medium yields, provided a perfect season for Chardonnay and Semillon.

WINEMAKING

The Chardonnay and Semillon were handpicked on the 12th February 2015. The grapes were then crushed and cooled before a light pressing. The Chardonnay and Semillon were co-fermented under cool conditions to retain and maximise fruit flavour. The wine then underwent malo-lactic fermentation to enhance the weight and texture of the wine. Sulphur dioxide was not used during the production of this wine.

TASTING NOTES

COLOUR Pale straw.

AROMA Pear, lemon and pineapple complexes with notes on freshly cut grass.

FLAVOUR Bright acidity and a gentle grip towards a dry finish.
