2021 Flowers Semillon
This orange-ish number from Koen Janssens is full bodied, round, curvaceous, soft. All the good things. It's a little cloudy, a little orange and a LOT flavourful. Peaches and tropical fruit, buried sweetness and a whole meadow of florals. Fruit comes from the southern end of the Barossa, from a sandy site with alluvial soil. It was picked while bright and balanced in early February, destemmed and saw a wee bit of skin before it was pressed directly to barrel. Here it stayed on lees until it was racked for blending and a little rest in stainless one month before bottling.
