Freehand Semillon 2013
- Vegan Suitable
- No Added Preservative (Preservative Free)
Winery/Brand: Freehand Natural Wines
In the glass it is a pretty gold colour with hints of orange. Bouquet of tropical fruits, pineapple maybe, spice and a minerally component. On the palate it's a tropical fruit salad, grassy, and an underlying nuttiness. It is very textural and seductive, finishing with lively acid that beckons another sip.
A well made, complex and delicious preservative free white wine
ORGANIC & BIODYNAMIC PRACTICES SINCE 2008

Tasting Notes from the Winery

Aroma: Lime, pear, light tropical and mineral
Taste: Melon, stone fruit, pear and integrated lemony acid
Background: The Freehand 2013 Semillon is a dry, barrel matured white. Handpicked in the vineyard for freshness and vitality. Aged on lees for 12 months in French oak Barriques. Juice was left to ferment naturally on skins for up to 72hrs to extract colour and flavour compounds from the skins. We gently basket press the skins and finish ferment in barrel with lees stirring. Malolactic fermentation is encouraged and usually completes in the following spring. A white wine made with zero sulphur additions and plenty of flavour and texture.
A fresh fruity, and fragrant white wine possessing depth and vitality with brilliant golden hues. A layered and rewarding white wine. Recommended by and to all Red wine and Oaked Chardonnay fans.
