“Nichon is a blend of 80% Semillon (60 years old) and 20% Sauvignon Blanc (25 years old). Both come from a sandy, own-rooted vineyard in the cool, Eastern area of the Barossa Valley known as the Vine Vale. The entire genesis of Richard and Carla's desire to make this wine is based on their love of what old Semillon can do after a few years in bottle: super nutty, honeyed, herbal notes on the nose paired with an insanely textural palate. The wine is basket pressed and barrel fermented, with blocked malo to retain that juicy acid. Nichon spends 12 months in second-use French oak, and is bottled unfined and unfiltered.”
