Overview & Tasting Notes

This wine shows a classic semillon nose of lemons and limes, whilst on the palate it is impeccably balanced being dominated by citrusy lime characters with a great length of fruit and a soft, approachable acid structure.

Accolades

  • Nick Stock - Good Wine Guide 2013 on

    93 Points - Bright, fine, juicy nectarine fruit nose here, this has some lovely citrus too, really even and nicely ripened. The palate’s juicy and even, and really lovely acidity works away below gentle, elegant fruit flavour. Lemony acid finish; balanced and ready.

  • Anthony Gismondi - Gismondi Today, Canada on Fri, June 28th 2013

    91 Points - I’m a big fan of young semillon with its fresh nettle/grass grapefruit green fruit aromas and flavours. In this case the attack is electric with tastes of lime, green fig, grapefruit, mint and quince. The acidity is upper bright and carries the finish begging for food. This will fatten up and turn the corner in two or three years in bottle to become a whole other wine but for the moment it is vibrant and deliciously electric. Super value.

  • James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2014 on

    91 Points & Highly Recommended - One of the first semillons of the vintage to hit the ground, it’s true to the season in its predictably taut and razor-sharp style of firm acid, cut grass, lemon and lime. A zesty lunchtime aperitif, or give it a few years to flesh out.
