Lily’s Cane Cut Semillon 2012
Hand Picked | Basket Pressed | Wild Yeast Ferment
Lily-Dene is Shawn & Briony’s first born child and seemed fitting to name this new sweet dessert wine after her.
This dessert wine was produced by cutting the fruiting cane which then ends the sap flow to the grapes. The grapes dehydrate which increases the concentration of flavour and natural sugars. After 20-30 days the dehydrated grapes are handpicked and juice pressed out by the basket press then carefully guided through fermentation in seasoned French oak barriques (6 months). The wine then remained in barrel for a further 6 months prior to bottling.
