Expert Reviews

Blend of Clare Valley semillon with Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc. Made by a white wine master in Jeffrey Grosset. This is a contained, controlled, textural wine. You can drink it now, of course, though in terms of extracting the best from it, it’s not quite ready. It tastes of green melon and thistles, lime and gunsmoke. It’s racy for the most part though there’s a whisper of an oily smoothness. Another very good release. Drink 2014-2017. 90+ Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front (JUL/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

The blend of estate-grown Clare semillon (70%) and single-site Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc (30%) produces a unique semillon sauvignon blanc bringing together the best of both varieties and both regions.

In 2013, there’s substance and body from the Clare semillon with thrilling, nervy, nectarine and white flower blossom and tight, coiled and marvellously intense white peach flavours from the Adelaide Hills sauvignon.

At this time, it’s still so youthful and primal with full-throttle white peach and nectarine flavours driving the mid-palate. It’s tight and mouth-pucking with pronounced zippy acidity that is crisp, clean and refreshing leaving a dry, schisty aftertaste. Expect it to show more minerally characters with some time in bottle while still remaining tantalisingly fruit-driven. It’s so delicious young that only those who forget that they have some in the cellar will see it with any maturity. No doubt, it’ll be pretty attractive still. But not better than it will be over the next twelve months.

Jeff thought the 2012 one of his best-ever Sem Sauv Blanc and this is unquestionably as good as the previous vintage. Hallmarks of the 2013 are its purity of fruit, its finesse and delicacy, inspite of its powerful flavours, as well as a vibrant tangy quality that lingers.
