Tasting Notes

This old vine Semillon is sourced from the Gallasch Vineyard in Ebenezer, planted in 1926 with the unique "Madeira" clone of Semillon. Custodianship of this vineyard has been maintained by numerous generations of the Gallasch family since early last century. There, considered and intuitive growers play "the long game"; their observant, receptive nature giving them a great understanding of their land and vines. It is hard county but the results are outstanding Semillon, Grenache and Shiraz, the latter regularly playing a part in Penfold's Grange.
Pete notes that the weak, sandy top soils over hard clay base delivers low yields that mature very early in the season providing freshness and full flavour with fantastic natural acidity. The Semillon was hand harvested, cold macerated on skins prior to fermentation with indigenous yeasts in seasoned French oak and acacia barriques, and spent eight months on lees prior to bottling without filtration. Expect lots of racy lemon curd and subtle lanolin notes and a wonderful crunchy driven vibrant freshness from woe to go. This will develop into something beautifully textured and complex with time but is also so delicious now. As with all Pete Schell whites don't serve them too cold and give them plenty of aeration when they are young. - Distributor Note

Peter Schell and Magali Gely have had a home in the Barossa Valley for over twenty years and hold a strong commitment to and passion for the Barossa. They also have a strong French connection, both physically and philosophically. Magali's family, who up until recently were vignerons with a long lineage in Lunel, near Montpellier, still live in south west France, and over the last ten years Peter has worked six French vintages, in Provence, the Languedoc, Bordeaux and Burgundy. Time spent in the south of France has fuelled their interest in making unique, hand crafted wines with personality, which are generous and honest expressions of the varieties and their provenance.Grapes are sourced from a group of dedicated growers in both the Barossa and Eden Valleys, taking advantage of the great diversity of the soils and meso-climates of the Barossa to create wines with balance, character, depth of flavour and Barossan generosity.
