Johnno’s Semillon

Exclusive to Private Bin members.

Shows all the hallmarks of a classic Hunter semillon. This wine comes from our Johnno’s vineyard, which sits just below the winery and was planted in 1908. Made in a style reminiscent of the Hunter semillons of yesteryear; the fruit was basket pressed, the juice saw minimal clarification and the wine was fermented using natural yeast. 

The result is a more textural style of semillon than we commonly make. This release shows an aromatic nose, which explodes out of the glass drawing you into what is a long and seamless palate. An intense citrus core is balanced by the textural elements of the wine, which is then completed by the soft acid line giving the wine its great length.

James Halliday 1 February 2016

Produced from 106yo vines on the HVD Vineyard, with only 250 dozen made. Hand-picked, basket-pressed unclarified juice gives the wine an extra degree of texture and structure, and underwrites its longevity; traditional cut grass and lemongrass flavours are punctuated by zesty acidity on the long, crystal clear palate. A bottle of liquid history, cheap at the price.
