Winemaker's Notes

Semillon has found a natural home in the Barossa. One of the very first white wine grape varieties planted by the first settlers, the Barossa is now blessed with a rich heritage of old, low yielding Semillon vineyards.

Color: Vibrant pale straw with green tinges

Bouquet: Clean-cut aromas of lemon flower, hints of grapefruit and bees wax.

Palate: A very elegant and delicate Semillon with persistent lemony lanolin characters on the middle palate. It is tightly structured in its youthful zestiness and finishes with clean & crisp, yet soft acidity. The wine is unoaked and totally fruit-driven.

Serving suggestions: Lightly chilled, Semillon is a delicious aperitif, and is a perfect partner for seafood and chicken, as well as Caesar salad.

Learn About Semillon

Semillon (sem-eel-YHON) Moldy-Goldie An essential white grape of Bordeaux, Semillon is a golden-berried goddess, producing some of the longest-lasting white wines ever made. It's the pride and joy of areas like Sauternes and Barsac for its ability to incur botrytis, or noble rot. The grape takes well to the fungus and in turn produces rich, golden,...
