Semillon is consistently one of the Barossa's most outstanding varieties. An elegant, fruit driven style this has the fine structure to mature yet remain a scintillating example of Barossan Semillon.

"A charmingly complex, regional and savoury semillon with a punchy, intensely ripe and slightly meaty bouquet whose aromas of honeydew melon, lemon sherbet and lime juice are backed by leesy and oak-derived nuances of smoked meats. Long and smooth, it’s vibrant and juicy with bright tropical and melon fruit underpinned by delightfully complex secondary notes, finishing long and refreshing."

"Just beginning to show treasured aromatics of toast and honeysuckle, plus kaffir lime leaf, this will handsomely repay a further four or five years careful cellaring. It’s bone dry, medium bodied and nicely textured with ripe pear, nuances of persimmon and a spine of bracing lemon-lime acidity. The crisp refreshing finish showers a spray of white grapefruit and green apple..." 4 Stars - Vic Harradine, www.winecurrent.com, (03/Apr/2010)
"Still moving toward maturity; crisp and firm, lemon, mineral, herb and grass intermingling. "Rating 90 - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2009 (05/Jan/2009)
