Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Bright, although pale, straw-green; has all the indicia of a young, high-quality Semillon emanating from mature vines, but which needs time to open up; good value, nonetheless, if you share my conviction about its future.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Mid gold; developed and already toasty for such a young Hunter Semillon; fleshy and toasty on the palate, this should be drunk sooner rather than later.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Bright, light straw-green; after a somewhat closed/undeveloped bouquet, the wine bursts into song on the palate, with intense lemon citrus, lemongrass and punchy acidity.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; offers an array of herb, spice, grass and lanolin aromas and flavours, the palate buttressed by firm acidity. Give it four to five years for a surprise.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Plenty of weight and structure, with some riper lemon flavours appearing; patience not required.

WINESTATE (2007 Vintage) says
Crisp, lean wine with plenty of acidity ensuring it will age very well. Some honeyed notes developing already.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Clean, clear-cut semillon aromas; still very fresh, and finishing with minerally acidity, with an array of fruit flavours on the way through.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Clean, with a touch of sweetness adding to the palate depth; drink sooner rather than later.
