  • James Halliday says:

    Pale straw-green; the bouquet is fresh and clean, but it is only on the palate that the wine bursts into exuberant life, with intense lemon sherbet flavours that course through the long palate. An interesting facet is Michael De IuliisÍ practice of picking the grapes a little riper than most. Great value.

    Nick Stock says:

    A waxy wine on first opening, this has a green melon and pear fruit nose, some apple here too, and hints of citrus. The palate s taut and tangy, really brisk, and lemony acidity drives it along; fresh and lithe finish.

    Tyson Stelzer (2013 Vintage) says:

    Great value in Hunter semillon, with immediate appeal in its fragrant lemon, pure grapefruit and zesty lime, and plenty of potential thanks to well-defined acidity, long, clean purity and soft texture.

    Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says:

    This is what lively, young Hunter semillon is about. With fresh lemon and white nectarine notes, it’s approachable and flamboyant, pulled into line in the end by a taut acid leash. Funky label. Check it out.

    James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says:

    Light straw-green; the bouquet is crisp and lifted, with citrus and grass notes, the palate with good drive, length and balance, and zesty, citrusy minerality, the finish bone dry.

    James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says:

    Fragrant lemon/lemongrass aromas and a vibrantly juicy palate, full of flavour and character, yet elegant. What a wonderful variety semillon is.

    James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says:

    Light, bright straw-green; expressive bouquet with notes of citrus, grass and a touch of herb; beautifully balanced palate, with very good line and length to the fruit, which has echoes of lime in the background. Now or later.

    James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says:

    Classic low-alcohol Hunter semillon; clean, crisp aromas still to fully evolve, but the palate shows much more character and flavour, verging citrus/tropical.

    James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says:

    A classic semillon bouquet and entry to the mouth; a mix of grass, herb, lemon and mineral; long finish.

    James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says:

    Crisp, clean, fresh and lively; a lemon and mineral mix, excellent acidity helping to lengthen the palate.

    James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says:

    Medium- to full yellow-green, bright and clear; a powerful, wine with gently ripened lemon/lime fruit; excellent acidity and length. Perverse use of Zork.

    James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says:

    Pale straw-green; light-bodied, but quite intense; lemony, minerally aromas and flavours; good balance, long finish.

    James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says:

    Light straw green-yellow; the bouquet is clean, crisp and very light, with a mix of faint herb and lime. The palate is crisp, quite intense, and has good acidity; seems to have all the requisites for ageing but demands patience.

    Australian Wine Companion 2001 2001

    James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says:

    Light straw-green; the bouquet is clean, and still developing, the palate in the same box; there is plenty of structure, but the wine is still in the mineral/ herb stage of its development. An each way proposition for drinking or cellaring.
