2013 Clare Valley Semillon - 95 Points James Halliday Wow Factor Whites 2015
As Always, hand picked and basket pressed. The bright, lemony acidity is the first thing that energises the palate, and from there on it's a stroll in the park. The barrel ferment adds structure, but in no way shrouds the varietal fruit. A delicious wine for true Semillon lovers.
2007 Clare Valley Semillon
A rich bouquet; straw and savoury spice notes from the oak; vibrant and lively, with citrus fruit aplenty and a very harmonious finish, if a little oaky at this point; a very interesting journey ahead.
Given complexity and structure by barrel ferment in French oak (mainly old) without compromising the grassy varietal fruit or delicacy; good line and length.
