StyleFull Bodied & Rich
This wine was crafted by partly barrel-fermenting some of the Viognier which was then racked from barrel in Spring. The result is a richly textured wine with bitter-sweet aromas of crystalised orange peel and ginger. Subtle flavours of stone fruits are enhanced by elegant creamy oak all perfectly balanced. Barrel-fermentation adds texture and a creaminess to the wine rather than a dominant oaky flavour. The wine is aptly named after the Latin name for silk, 'Serica'. In the 14th century, silk production or sericulture was as widespread in this region as viticulture.
