Rob Geddes MW (2007 Vintage) says
Started out a classic zesty style and moved to rounder textural wine with clinical cleanness and more mouth filling flavour.

Pale green-straw; the colour belies its age; very smooth and supple, the finish long, but quite soft; a left-field style.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Quite a restrained and delicate bouquet, with lemon curd and anise on show; the palate is fine, almost ethereal, with crisp acidity providing a clean and focused conclusion.

Tyson Stelzer (2005 Vintage) says
Pristine, pure and backward, this is a wine of definition and restraint. Primary lemon fruit is beginning to morph into preserved lemon and roast nuts with nuances of lanolin. Tight and coiled up, it needs a few years yet and will happily live beyond a decade.

Elegant, with intense varietal aromas and flavours while retaining delicacy to the grass, lemon and honey-accented fruit; clean, crisp finish with balanced acidity.

"From a big name comes an exceedingly small-production Semillon. It has a fleshiness and richness derived from its patch of soil, and a spicy, nutty, lanolin complexity from bottle age. Soft, subtle acidity makes it ripe for drinking now."

Spotlessly clean and delicate; appealing, sweet lemon juice flavours; good length.
