A blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Semillon with a brilliant mid-straw color with green tints. Chardonnay and Semillon are two classic varieties very much at home in the Barossa Valley. The Spires blend is "a real fruit explosion" according to winemaker Stuart Bourne, and little has been done in winemaking terms to interfere with that.
The bouquet shows complexity with lifted citrus, peel and floral notes with some stone fruit characters and a hint of fresh herbs. Subtle French oak complements this crisp clean wine with its tangy citrus flavours. A long finish makes the Spires Chardonnay Semillon very satisfying drinking, especially with foods like pasta, quiche and salads.
