Expert Reviews

Ray Jordan (2005 Vintage) says
Amberley have created a distinctive style with this blend that also gets a little oak. Shows some creamy lees influence and an immensely powerful palate. Still really tight and bracing with that penetrating acid sustaining a long palate. This is a wine that will develop richness and complexity as it ages.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Has complex structure and powerful flavours deriving from the barrel ferment and extended lees contact; does shorten somewhat on the finish.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Still very youthful; complex aromas and flavours with slightly edgy oak inputs; firm mouthfeel and acidity; needs more time to resolve its aggression.

Good length and oak balance; herb and oak flavours; nice dry finish.

This is an attempt to take Semillon to another plain, and it's worked beautifully. Supremely complex and arresting characters show the lengths they have gone to craft this wine. Some barrel fermentation and lees character has supplemented the mouth feel with creamy buttery character. The citrus and oak characters provide a nice balance with the deep palate flavours.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; obvious barrel-ferment complexes the tangy bouquet with its rich fruit. The palate opens with attractive tangy fruit, and it is not until the aftertaste that the strong vanillin oak flexes its considerable muscle.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the bouquet is quite intense and complex, with just a whisker of mineral or matchbox which progressively dissipated as the wine aired. It has excellent mouthfeel, flavour and length, with that extra horsepower which is unique to Margaret River.
