2023 Apricus Hill Semillon


All Prices shown are GST Inclusive

Apricus Hill, established in 1995, is the highest vineyard in Denmark on Western Australia’s far south coast.  At 750 feet above sea level and with panoramic views of the Southern Ocean the vineyard experiences a significant maritime effect with cooling ocean breezes making it a true “cool climate” vineyard.

This Semillon has been made with only the “free run” juice – the first run, finest quality juice without the bitterness and phenolics associated with the grape skin.  The juice was fermented at low temperatures in a stainless-steel tank to capture the inherent delicacy and finesse of this aromatic variety.

A brilliant, clear steely white with youthful green hues, with a vibrant lifted nose of lemons, cut grass and snow peas with hints of blossom and spice. Crisp lemons and limes lead to a richer mid palate of passionfruit and quince.

This wine will improve with up to 10 years careful cellaring. The use of screw cap technology is critical to the longevity of this wine.
