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.
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 premium blend of Semillon, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Verdelho. Moreish in style and not overly complicated, this wine is light, bright and floral with a soft and rich palate full of citrus fruit. The perfect balance of sophistication and approachability.
Item Code: ITM2358
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
An intense nose combining the aromatic quince and citrus of Semillon with the vibrant herbaceous characters of cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc. The palate is seamless with citrus characters backed by bright acidity, leading to a crisp, refreshing finish.
Item Code: ITM7664
This blend comprises 55% Semillon and 45% Sauvignon Blanc. A sophisticated style, made only from the free-run juice. Complex aromas of snow pea and freshly cut grass flow onto a soft, creamy palate where citrus fruit flavours combine with spicy undertones. A touch of vanilla from time spent in French oak adds structure and balance, and leads into a seamless finish. A beautifully integrated wine.
Item Code: ITM3144
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.
