Barossa Valley, SA.
This single vineyard Semillon is from one of the older surviving Semillon vineyards in the Barossa, planted on the Kalleske property in 1980. Grapes from these old low-yielding vines were native yeast fermented and matured in a trio of vessels; French barrels for oak richness, concrete egg tank adding complexity and stainless tank providing freshness.There is evident oak from barrel maturation adding another layer of flavour. There is further complexity with honey, butter and creamy notes from the natural malolactic fermentation and time on lees. The wine is balanced with bright acidity adding backbone and length. Elenore is a lavishly flavoured old vine Barossa Semillon that can be enjoyed now or over the next five years.
