Tyrrell’s Belford Vineyard Semillon 2014

The 1933 planted Belford vineyard is dry grown and located quite some ways from the Brokenback range. It has the most broken down soil composition, which “is so fine it is almost like talcum powder.”

Maturing honeyed lemon with hints of lime, a line of greener pea sprout and minerally soft rock. Starting to show honeyed depth, the acidity has just started to soften, yet still tart with waxy lemon chunk flesh and holding a very good line of intensity. Will have no problem lasting for another 10 years, but I’d be more inclined to enjoy the current dynamics at play between richness and intensity.
