In ancient Greece the Sileni were companions of Dionysus, the god of wine, vineyards and theatre. When there was something to be celebrated, the Sileni were always on hand to encourage enjoyment of delicious food, great wine and social interaction. Named in their honour, Sileni Estates produces a range of wines made to be great collaborators, with a talent for enhancing flavours and textures.
The Late Harvest Semillon is grown in the Bridge Pa Triangle sub-region of Hawke’s Bay. Warm, even growing conditions and free draining silt over red metal gravels provide perfect growing conditions, allowing the fruit to reach optimum ripeness with concentrated sugars.
Fruit for this reserve wine is harvested late in the season once the sugars have intensified, before de-stemming and gentle pressing. The juice is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Fermentation is stopped early to retain the luscious sweetness in the wine.
Grape variety: Semillon
