Semillon, 'Margaret River', Happs

This Semillon owes its character to the Three Hills Vineyard in the extreme south of Margaret River that is pruned and picked by hand. The vineyard has a very high leaf area to fruit weight and the trellis spreads the foliage reducing the density of leaves and enabling them to function better. The fruit loses its green character, is golden and flavorsome at harvest, very different to that in vineyards designed for mechanization. The soil is managed organically without herbicides, the vines are not irrigated and grape flavor is concentrated. The result is a full bodied food wine, golden in color, gutsy in its mid-palate weight, food friendly, intriguing in its composition, and long lived. Matured in stainless steel at cold temperatures on its lees, and then intentionally aged for a few years in bottle to bring out the honeyed character of Margaret River Semillon.
