2021 Breaking Ground Semillon
Exciting wines from 3rd generation maker and grower, and all round good bloke, Ollie Margan.
40 year old Semillon vines from the Fordwich Hill vineyard. Half was cold settled and fermented neutral and clean, half was fermented on full solids for mid palate texture. No adjustments made. Extended contact with fine lees to further build mid palate weight for early enjoyment. The cool ripening period of 2021, and resultant chemistry of the grapes at ripeness, meant that he really didn’t muck around with the Semillon. A real zinger! Chasing that Glenn McGrath-like line and length.
