Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. SALVIS GRATIA* Semillon 2021


SALVIS GRATIA* (meaning 'Saving Grace') is a small-batch labour-of-love, carefully hand-harvested from some of the last remnants of the Madeira Semillon clone in the Barossa, planted by the Fechner brothers in 1983. SALVIS GRATIA* is an exciting addition to our 'Barossa Nouveau' series joining our established Old Vine Grenache stars Pax Aeterna and Lux Venit* Rosé. This series is all about championing these remnant Old Vine varietals that have always been special but have sometimes fallen off the radar as new varietal fads come and go. Hand harvested, gently whole bunch pressed, 25% completed ferment and matured in new sirugue french oak puncheon. SALVIS GRATIA* is a sublime, zesty, elegantly opulent expression of Barossa Semillon... it's an absolute ripper!
