Drayton's Family Wines Semillon

Cracka Review

A traditional Hunter Semillon made in the classic style. The wine having citrus lemon like aromas with a soft full, clean and fresh flavoured palate. With 5 to 7 years bottle maturation the wine will develop into a rich toasty full bodied wine.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; already shows the first signs of toast and honey that will emerge with age; for now, lemon and grass flavours dominate the long palate.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Firm and long; a minerally backbone with a touch of grass; classic style; should develop.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Clean; the varietal character is there, but the wine is as yet painfully shy; needs time and patience, which will be rewarded.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Easy style, with plenty of ripe, flavoursome fruit.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Paint reduction on the bouquet in no way marks the intensely crisp and fresh palate, with herb, lemon and vibrant acidity.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Pale straw; both the bouquet and palate have quite intense and relatively ripe citrus/lemon fruit. While the CO2 is a little bit evident, the wine has good potential.
