"Woodcutter's" Semillon is not much different from the white wines produced in the central and southern regions of France. This is largely due to the use of grape of Madeira with more dense and pink skin - clone varieties Semillon, widespread in the Barossa Valley. Crop is harvested from the old 160-year-old vines. Young wine is partially fermented in 6-year-old French barrels, partly - in stainless steel tanks. The name of the line of wines "Woodcutter" (translated from the English "Lumberjack") gives nostalgia David Powell Timber harvesting work in the woods Torbrek.
