Rolf Binder 'Christa Rolf' Semillon/Chardonnay

  • Proef: Schitterende strogele kleur met felle groene tinten. Enorm smaakvolle wijn met aroma’s van citroen en limoen. Verder in de mond hints van vanille en noten gevolgd door een fijne, frisse finale. Lekker bij St-Jacobsschelp, zwezerik en kalfsvlees. Another great wine from renowned white winemaker Christa Deans, this popular blend of two great white varietals shows abundant fruit with perfectly balanced acidity. THE VINEYARDS: The fruit for this Semillon and Chardonnay blend was sourced from older vines in the Binder ‘Chri Ro’ Estate vineyard, adjacent to the winery. A small portion of Semillon was also taken from the Binder Estate ‘Western Ridge’ vineyard in the western Barossa Valley sub region - an area known for producing grapes with great intense flavour. THE VINTAGE: Wines from the Barossa Valley’s 2019 vintage will be of very high quality but of limited supply. With a very dry winter and spring; frost events in September and November disrupted bud burst and flowering; hot, dry conditions in January and February also contributed to 2019 being recorded as the lowest-yielding Barossa harvest of the past decade. THE WINEMAKING: The Semillon and Chardonnay grapes were harvested early in the 2019 Vintage in mid February and the batches of fruit were processed and fermented seperately in the winery. The resulting wines were blended together, with 24% of the wine matured in oak barrels for 4 months (80% one yr old French, 20% older American). The final wine was bottled August 2019. ANALYSIS: Alc. Vol 13.0%, Acidity 3.1 g/l, pH 6.9 THE PROFILE: Medium straw in colour. As a young wine, this 2019 Semillon Chardonnay is delightfully aromatic, displaying soft peach with a hint of citrus and oak on the nose. On the palate, the wine shows well balanced acidity and mouthfeel, with a lemon note that lingers well on the palate. A delightfully enjoyable wine. This blend highlights the character and acidity of Semillon with the generosity of fruit of Chardonnay. It is an excellent wine for pairing to salmon and chicken, and also cheeses. CELLARING: Crisp and fresh upon release, this wine will also reward those who wait longer given the quality of the premium fruit used to produce the wine. Can be enjoyed 5-8 years.
