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.
I really enjoyed this affordable easy drinking wine. I detected hints of grapefruit and lemongrass. It does not require and food pairing, as it stands alone quite well.
Tasted more like a chardonnay than expected
