Full tasting note and wine making –
Helmsman Semillon Sauvignon is a Semillon-rich wine that displays ripe, slightly waxy fruit characters intermingled with generous flavours of passionfruit.
It is made from various parcels across South Eastern Australia, personally selected by Larry Cherubino for their fruit characters and quality of grapes.
2017 did not see the drought conditions that were seen across Australia in recent years so crops were plentiful but the dry conditions at the end of summer lead to good quality fruit too.
The grapes undergo traditional white wine fermentation in stainless steel tanks in order to retain the fresh acidity and fruit characters.
The producer –
Robert Oatley Vineyards is the latest venture of the Oatley family winemaking dynasty, which was founded by the late industry legend Bob Oatley. His legacy continues in his eldest son Sandy, who worked alongside his father for many years and manages the business today.
Created in 2006, Robert Oatley Vineyards aims to embody the best that Australia can produce where classic grape varieties are matched to the leading wine regions of Australia. Along with grapes from the family properties, some dating back to 1858, the Oatley family draw upon select growers of excellence across a diverse range of climatic regions. A deep understanding of viticulture enables the team to identify the best vineyard sites in Australia.
The talented winemaking team is led by Larry Cherubino – one of Australia’s most awarded winemakers. His chief winemaking roles have been in McLaren Vale and Margaret River. He has also worked in Bordeaux, Burgundy, the Loire, Tuscany, Sicily, New Zealand and the U.S.A.
It is a perfect match to shellfish or chicken dishes & great with grilled and roasted white meats, fish, shellfish, salads and picnics.
