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 classic Hunter Valley Semillon crafted by an iconic producer. Lifted floral and citrus aromatics follow onto a generous palate loaded with citrus flavours and backed by good acidity. An excellent wine for Semillon lovers.

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. The palate displays an amazing structure made up of a refreshing line of acidity leading to a finish of great length and flavour.

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
