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.
Contemporary in style this youthful wine offers fabulous flavour intensity yet is still approachable and refreshing. A fragrant bouquet of ripe lemon and spicy talc continues onto the palate. Rich and juicy, the palate is supported a crisp acid line which leads the wine to long, clean and refreshing finish.

McWilliam's Lovedale Vineyard in the Hunter Valley is renowned as one of the most famous in Australia. In 2015, Mount Pleasant made none of their top Lovedale Semillon, and thanks to being in the right place at the right time we were first in line to get this 2015 Mount Pleasant Single Vineyard Semillon.
You can just taste the intensity of vines that date back to the 1940s, with this wine's big brother now a $135 Semillon. There is no doubt that if you can keep your hands off this epic wine it will last for twenty or even thirty years.

"As if by alchemy, with age semillon slips into a toasty, butter brioche, lime-marmalade and waxy realm without its acidity wavering. This certainly has freshness and plenty of years ahead of it, but that magical 5-years-before-release-date includes all the other complex stuff." Halliday Wine Companion
