Semillon

Mount Mary Triolet Semillon Sauvignon Blanc Muscadelle

A classic and refined style with some citrus characters framed by bakery and subtle vanilla spice, the iconic Triolet is a classic Bordeaux Blanc blend, incorporating the three varieties of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle. It was first produced by Mount Mary in 1987. The varieties are fermented separately in barrel with complexity and palate weight gained from extended lees contact and fermentation on solids.

Rockford PW Mayflower Cane Cut Semillon

Rockford Wines is a renowned wine producer located in the iconic Barossa Valley of Australia. Established in the early 1980s by Robert O'Callaghan, it has gained recognition as one of the most distinguished wineries in Australia, producing premium Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon wines. O'Callaghan commenced his career as a trainee winemaker in 1965 at Seppelt in Rutherglen, Victoria. In 1971, he relocated to the Barossa and acquired two hectares (five acres) of land beneath the Barossa ranges, where he planted vines and built a winery in the style of the 1850s stone cottage. Rockford's first vintage was released in 1984. Rockford's commitment to producing exceptional wines involves working in partnership with several independent wine growers around the Barossa region. Many of the vines are planted on their own rootstocks and are up to 130 years old, resulting in intense, concentrated grapes and wines with the same attributes. The winemaking process at Rockford is largely traditional, utilizing basket presses, open-topped slate fermenters and a 1880s petrol-driven Bagshaw destemmer/crusher. The Barossa Valley, located in South Australia, is known for its warm climate and ancient soils, which provide the perfect conditions for Semillon grapes to thrive. The region's hot and dry summers, coupled with cool evenings, allow the grapes to gradually ripen, resulting in wines with exceptional flavour development. Barossa Valley's Semillon its vibrant acidity, which brings a lively and crisp sensation to the palate. The flavors of tropical fruits, like pineapple and passionfruit, take centre stage, providing a burst of juicy sweetness. These fruity notes are often balanced by a hint of herbaceousness, adding complexity and depth to the wine. One of the most remarkable aspects of Barossa Valley's Semillon is its ability to age gracefully. While it is enjoyable in its youth, the wine truly shines with time. As it matures, the vibrant fruit flavors transform into more complex and honeyed characteristics. The acidity mellows, allowing the wine to develop a rich and velvety texture that coats the palate with elegance. Cane Cut Semillon is a luscious and sweet dessert wine made from Semillon grapes that have been left on the vine and allowed to naturally dry and shrivel. This process concentrates the sugars in the grapes, resulting in a rich and honeyed flavour profile. Cane Cut Semillon is known for its golden colour, intense aromas of citrus and tropical fruits and a smooth, velvety texture. It pairs wonderfully with desserts, cheeses, or can be enjoyed on its own as a decadent treat. The Rockford PW Mayflower Cane Cut Semillon 2017 is a truly exceptional dessert wine that is sure to captivate your senses. With its golden hue and enticing aromas, it promises a delightful tasting experience. On the nose, this Cane Cut Semillon reveals a bouquet of luscious honey, ripe apricot and candied orange peel. These enticing aromas are complemented by subtle hints of vanilla and toasted almonds, adding a touch of complexity. As you take your first sip, the wine envelops your palate with a luxurious, velvety texture. The flavors are rich and concentrated, with layers of sweet nectarine, tropical pineapple and ripe peach. The sweetness is perfectly balanced by a vibrant acidity, which adds a refreshing zing to the overall profile. The Rockford PW Mayflower Cane Cut Semillon 2017 showcases impeccable balance and finesse. The lingering finish is a harmonious blend of honeyed sweetness and zesty citrus, leaving a lasting impression. This wine is a true masterpiece, showcasing the expertise and dedication of the winemakers at Rockford. It pairs exceptionally well with a range of desserts, from creamy crème brûlée to tangy lemon tart.

Mount Mary Triolet

The Triolet blend, first produced at this vineyard in 1987, was inspired by the white wines of Graves, Bordeaux. Each variety is picked at optimum ripeness, and is usually fermented separately. The characteristics of optimum ripeness are different for each variety. We pick the Sauvignon blanc after the strong herbaceous flavours have disappeared, the Semillon when the acid is not too harsh, and the Muscadelle when the flavour intensity peaks.

Tyrrell's Wines Vat 1 Semillon

'We are tasting the Tyrrell's 2006 Vat 1 semillon, a Hunter Valley wine which, at sevenyears old, is still a juvenile, easily capable of another decade of good drinking. Its longevity is at the very heart of what makes it so astounding. To think of it as a one-year-old is a different story: gangly, acid, water and neutral flavour, not astounding. Vat 1 also shows us you don't have to pay big dollars for greatness.' - Canberra Times, Jeni Port, 10 Apr 2013. Extract from 'What makes a great wine?'

Brokenwood ILR Semillon

The freshness of this wine demonstrates why Hunter semillon is possibly the most under-rated wine style in the world. The aromas centre around lemon, lime and fresh hay, and the palate is decidedly linear, based on a spine of acidity. This exceptional wine, at six years of age, is still at least five away from its optimum drinking window. 'Little or no colour change; the bouquet is distinctly aromatic, but still focused on primary fruit, not toast or honey; the palate is electrifying, drawing saliva from the mouth with its mix of unsweetened lemon juice/lemon zest and life-giving acidity, the DNA of great Semillon.10.9% alcohol.' (2009 Vintage) - 97 points. - James Halliday February 2016.

Tyrrell's Selection Vat 1 Semillon

Winemaker's Selection Vat 1 Semillon only ever comes from the oldest and best blocks. The vines are all dry grown on their own roots, and date back to 1923.

Chateau d'Yquem

The harvest began very early, on the 5th September, and lasted 9 weeks. This made is possible to reflect all the diversity of a year in which both flowering and veraison were very spread out. Picking began especially early at Yquem in 2014. Some 25% of the crop was brought in before the 15th of September, providing a rare and precious background of acidity.

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.
