Colere Hope Valley Nelson Semillon 2016 $25
Well if you thought you were in for a smooth and saucy time with this semillon think again because the acidity is bangaranging! Freshly baled hay, dried watercress, smashed lemongrass and peppery perfume on the nose, maturing on the palate into secondary, nutty, smoky notes. Super-dry and funkified due to its natural fermentation in a combo of French oak and stainless-steel. It was blended back to tank and left on its yeast lees for a couple of years to add complexity before being transferred to older oak to settle before bottling. Crazy wine indeed.
