Konpira Maru - 2019 Admiral Ackbar Semillon
This product is currently sold out.
Sam and Al make low intervention wines with a focus on affordability and high-drinkability. The boys work with growers across Queensland and Victoria, and over the last couple of years they've been tending their own vineyard above the King Valley, surrounded by sub-alpine Eucalypt forest, organically farming Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Gris.
This happy drop is 100% Semillon, picked on 28 March 2019, soaked for 48 hours as whole berries then destemmed and fermented. Gently plunged once per day to control extraction and pressed. Racked 3 times. A nose of musk stick, lemongrass and pawpaw pave the way for an oily but textural front palate that finishes with coriander seed and fennel. Firm but integrated tannins and crunchy acid make it an ideal food-wine. Just 3941 bottles made!
