This wine of distinction has been created in recognition of our ancestor William Tipple Smith, accredited with discovering the first payable gold in NSW. He was prospecting in rugged hill country near Bathurst in 1847 when he struck gold. Unfortunately, ‘Bad Luck Billy’ was not acknowledged at the time for his find. However, we his 4th, 5th and 6th generation descendants, have staked our claim on this liquid gold……….
Perfect conditions allowed bortrytis-affected Semillon grapes to be handpicked at optimum ripeness during Autumn. “Tipple’s Gold” displays a brilliant golden hue with concentrated citrus aromas and a luscious full rounded palate dominated by strong tropical peach and apricot flavours underpinned by well balanced spicy French oak nuances creating a long, smooth finish.
‘Strike Gold’ and enjoy with your favourite dessert or cheese platter. 500mL
