Semillon’s traditional home is in Bordeaux, where it is nearly always blended with Sauvignon Blanc. This style is emulated with great success in Western Australia. Australia, uniquely, also produces high quality wine solely from Semillon. Hunter Valley Semillon, with its crisp citrus flavours and its exceptional ability to develop with age, is one of Australia’s great contributions to the world of wine.
A soft, more approachable Hunter Valley Semillon exhibits aromas of lime and refreshing citrus flavours. The floral nose leads into a palate that is seamlessly balanced between soft Semillon fruit characters and a clean light finish.
Item Code: ITM7019
Floral aromas on the nose and soft lemon citrus flavours are the hallmark of this classic Hunter Semillon. A light, fresh structure and a cleansing finish make this wine a great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling. An ideal partner for fresh seafood.
Item Code: ITM1370
Hand-picked and single-vineyard. Pristine natural acidity and fresh citrus characters are testament to glowing conditions leading up to the 2016 vintage. There’s a hint of tropical fruit that will continue to intensify with age. No use oak in this wine has encouraged true varietal definition.
Item Code: ITM4133
A classic young Hunter Semillon showing an excellent balance of lemon/lemongrass flavours and structural acidity. The wine is drinking beautifully now but will certainly develop further complexity with time in the cellar. Expect it to begin to develop rich, toasty characters after five or so years.
Item Code: ITM5919
Pale green in colour with lifted floral and citrus aromas. On the
palate, sweet pear and crunchy apple flavours are balanced by limey
acidity creating a refreshing off-dry finish.
Item Code: ITM5031
The 2014 vintage yielded stunning fruit, which was carefully hand-picked to preserve its integrity. Aromas of lime leaves, lemon flowers and hints of classic herbaceous notes lead on to a silky citrus acidity on the palate.

Sourced from Major Lane Vineyard, which has consistently some of the Hunters most outstanding Semillons, and this wine is no different. Subtle aromatics of citrus and floral notes.

Item Code: ITM6256
Released five years after cellaring, this Semillon is showing lemongrass aromas with some complex waxy, honeyed notes. The palate is dry with gorgeous natural acidity and a zesty finish.
Item Code: ITM5989
“A touch of smokiness and sulphur, lime and lemongrass, almost water-coloured, such is the subtlety, with pure minerally acidity, a light chalky texture, long clean length, with a dusting of spice in both texture and flavour to close. Beautiful. Finesse and precision.” Gary Walsh
Item Code: ITM6358
"Elevated, grassy aromatics introduce an intensely textured and flavoured palate. This is where holding wines back from release is keenly in the drinker's favour. Lemon pith, wax, hay and lemongrass flavours do everything possible to both charm and impress." James Halliday
