A fresh and bright wine that has the grassy and plush stone fruit characters of Semillon and a wonderful, zesty palate with gorgeous, tropical fruit characters - think limes, apricots and grassy, lemony loveliness. Fermentation in new French oak plays a huge role in toning white fig, nettle and lemon drop candy notes, bridled to a lively undercarriage of acidity that is juicy rather than forced.
While a delightful drink early in its life, it will also age beautifully and begin to display a denser and more complex palate as the years pass.
I'd bought six bottles of the 2008 vintage from a major supermarket many years ago, and drank the final bottle only last month. It was superb, rich and honeyed - exactly what mature Semillon should be. This is top quality wine at a great price. Excellent service and very quick delivery too.
This wine is a great favourite of mine and I have bought it in a number of vintages. The 2017 vintage is drinking well now but it will continue to improve as it matures. I found that it was easy to order online and my delivery was received within days. I found her emails informing me about the progress of my order to be very helpful. I will certainly place repeat orders.
I originally ordered a different Semillon, which was out of stock. This was suggested as an alternative. Was I glad that I agreed. The wine is good both with and without food. I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good Semillon.
Arrived 5days before I expected it
Can’t ask for anything more.
And the wine was as good as ever.
