    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2005 is the 24th vintage of Brokenwood Semillon and a release always worth celebrating. Looking back at the previous vintages, it appeared that the vintage was heading the same direction as 2004 with scorching heat (but thankfully no fires) in the Valley. However, these were fine, dry conditions giving excellent citrus Semillon characters. Harvesting was done by hand. The fruit was crushed, chilled and pressed immediately. Only stainless steel, no oak and no malolactic fermentation.

    Excellent, luminous green/yellow color. Lifted zesty, lemongrass aromas with some sweet apple blossom characters. Fruit dominant on the palate but typical tight structure with citrus acid finish. Initial lime plus cut grass flavor. Perfect balance of fruit, alcohol and acid.

    Pair this wine with Asian Food and any seafood, especially fresh shucked oysters.
