The Semillon is sourced from our loyal Barossa growers, who tend their old Semillon vines. Soils range from grey sandy loam to more fertile red clay loams across the Barossa Valley. Semillon for Christobelís is always picked early to retain freshness and the classic lemon sorbet flavour. Grapes were gently pressed and fermented cool to maximise these attributes, Sauvignon Blanc adds aromatic complexity.
Pale straw in colour, the 2007 Christobelís has a delicate and fresh nose of lemongrass and grapefruit sorbet. The light-bodied palate is lively and refreshing with mouth-watering acidity and crisp finish. A great food match would be fresh Tommy ruff fillets crumbed and served with lemon wedges.
