Winemaker Notes

Vibrant pale yellow with a green hue, aromas of limes and citrus are abundant on the nose and carry through to a seamless long and elegant palate denoted by flavors of white peach and citrus peel.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Scents of crushed stone and lime zest emerge on the nose of the 2016 Semillon. It's light-bodied yet plump, with an appealing silky texture and bright lemon/lime and under-ripe pineapple flavors that linger on the slightly pithy finish. For a young Semillon, it's remarkably appealing.
JS 91
James Suckling
A handy array of lime, lemon and grapefruit citrus, really pure and expressive, the palate has a direct, juicy and flavor some feel to it, stone fruits chime in here too, drink now.

Most admired for citrus-driven, mineral-rich and often age-worthy Semillon wines, Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s oldest wine regions and was home to its very first commercial vineyards. The region’s warm summer nights coupled with autumn cloud cover and cool sea breezes allow full ripening and healthy acidity levels for Semillon; its diverse soils of volcanic basalt and white alluvial sands promote the development of Semillon’s delicate aromas. Hunter Valley Semillons can certainly be enjoyed in their youth but with 10 to 20 years in the cellar, the best examples develop intriguing notes of honey, browned butter and roasted nuts.

Chardonnay and Shiraz also do well in Hunter Valley.

An unassuming but noble variety capable of wines with considerable structure, depth and length, Sémillon has the power to create wines that improve for several decades. It is the perfect partner to the aromatic and vivid Sauvignon Blanc; the two are most commonly found blended in their home region of Bordeaux. Sémillon especially shines in Sauternes, one of the world’s greatest sweet wines. Somm Secret—Sémillon was so common in South Africa in the 1820s, covering 93% of the country’s vineyard area, it was simply referred to as Wyndruif, or “wine grape.”
