These are the most extreme western longitudes of Mornington, the undulating paddocks and sweeping views of tempestuous Bass Strait are a magical place for growing Burgundesque styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, well protected north facing parcels of propitious free draining limestone and calcareous sands.

Mount Pleasant Lovedale Vineyard Semillon CONFIRM VINTAGE

97 Points James Halliday & Top 100 Wines 2015
Semillon Hunter Valley New South Wales
Outstanding Langtons Classification. The locals around the Lovedale property say that the sandy soils are so poor, that even the rabbits have to bring a tucker box just to survive! The lean and mean terroir is elemental to the long lived, fine boned style. Lovedale has claimed no fewer than 150 gold medals and 70 trophies throughout its illustrious history. An enduring and timeless effort of elegance and grace, Lovedale stands as the quintessential expression of Hunter Valley Semillon, one of Australia's great contributions to the international atlas of wine.

Semillon for this amazing wine is sourced entirely from the Lovedale Vineyard, originally planted by legendary winemaker Maurice O'Shea in 1946. Fruit is harvested relatively early for a wine with relatively low alcohol and naturally high acidities. All grapes are hand picked and sent to the Mt Pleasant wineworks where they are destemmed and crushed, the musts are chilled and the juices are drained. After forty eight hours settling, the clear juices are racked off, warmed and inoculated with neutral yeast. Ferments are slow and kept at cool temperatures to retain flavour. Lovedale is bottled just three weeks after vinification and held back for several years of bottle ageing under the Mt Pleasant cellars. Alcohol 10.0%
Deep straw hues. Vibrant bouquet, complex and effusive with layers of citrus fruit, lemon curd, honey and hints of toast, notes of crushed quartz and wild herb. Long and complex palate exhibiting youthful vibrancy and aged complexity. Primary citrus fruits intertwine with mineral acidity and developing toasty aged influences. Flavour weight then increases across the length and breadth of the delicate, complex and finely structured palate.
