Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon
Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon is one of Australia's great white wines and has the capacity to age superbly in the bottle. This release continues the recent immaculate line up of Vat 1s that show classic citrus floral and honey aromas. The palate is dry, yet full-flavoured with lovely crisp acidity. Still only a relative baby in terms of Vat 1s longevity, this bottle will reward you for decades to come.

Mount Pleasant Lovedale Semillon
Released with bottle age this is a wine which will still continue to evolve over many years the toasty lemony flavours becoming richer and more intense. A classic benchmark Hunter Semillon, it has earned its place in the Langtons Classification of Australian Wine.
Brokenwood ILR Reserve Semillon
Brokenwood ILR Reserve Semillon is a brilliant example of the classic Hunter Valley Style. Glorious toast and almond bread characters with flavours of honey and a nutty finish. Will age for what seems like an age.
Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon
A multiple award winner, this gorgeous Barossa Semillon from Peter Lehmann is showing complex aromas of nuts, lanolin, beeswax and honeyed overtones. The palate is fresh with wonderful breadth and lemony/honeyed aged characters. Serving it up to those in the Hunter Valley quite nicely!
Tyrrell's Stevens Semillon
Complex mineral and flint aromas with a palate that has good length. Tyrrell's Stevens Semillon has wonderful balance between the fresh citrus flavours of youth and the aged 'toasty' characters. It is great with seafood dishes.
Margan Aged Release Semillon
This Aged Release Semillon has been crafted using Lower Hunter Valley fruit. The palate is full of citrus characters and minerality.

Brokenwood Hunter Valley Semillon
Tyrrells Winemakers Selection Vat 1 Semillon
A young and approachable white wine, this wine has been crafted to last a long time in the cellar. The well balanced palate contains fresh citrus elements supported by crisp acidity, leading to a clean finale.
Brokenwood Wines ILR Aged Reserve Semillon
ILR is Brokenwoods flagship Semillon showing concentrated lemon curd, toast and honey notes with superb depth and intensity of flavour supported by a spine of lemony acidity. It is named in honour of managing director-chief winemaker Iain Leslie Riggs. The grapes are hand harvested, crushed, chilled and pressed immediately. Brokenwood inoculates with neutral yeast for fermentation in inert stainless steel. In typical Hunter style, there is no malolactic fermentation or oak influence. A style capable of long ageing, the ILR is only released after five years of bottle age.
Jasper Hill Georgias Paddock Semillon
Complex honey, praline, toast and lanolin aromas and flavours dominate, with a light oak background adding weight and a crisp citrus finish. Only a couple of barrels made each year, so a rarity and little known generally as a Jasper Hill wine from Heathcote. Drink later in the meal, with poultry, cheese or full flavoured vegetable dishes.
