Admiral Ackbar Semillon is a refreshing yet textural Semillon we make from the Quarry Ridge Vineyard, Kilmore VIC. Grapes were harvested mid-April, destemmed and fermented as whole berries. It gets pressed immediately following completion of primary ferment ensuring that it maintains primary fruit (in fact it has an almost Jube-like juiciness) as well as that beautiful texture you get from Semillon skins.
This was Alastair’s favourite wine of the 2017 vintage.
If you like this you will like its partner the Admiral Adama Semillon we make up in South Burnett QLD. Both show the incredible range possible with this variety.
