Community Tasting Note

  • ProfAvi Likes this wine: 95 points

    December 23, 2021 - I bought a 6 bottle case that had been matured by the TWS in the UK before release.
    Cant remember what I spent but I bought the wine because of its reputation.
    I've never had a semillon that wasn't sweet before so this was a revelation for me.

    I really liked this wine from the get go.
    Beautiful in the glass, bright, pale lemony with a hint of green. Somewhat muted nose with mineral, stone with a touch of beeswax.
    However it comes to life for me on the palate.
    There's no way I'd have guessed a 10 year old white wine.
    Its bracing acidity reminds me of a Chablis but this is grown in Australia! Mind blown.
    There's a touch of creaminess developing too.
    I know this wine can last years.
    For my taste it's spot on now but don't drink it too cold.

    My normal go to whites are Chardonnay Riesling or Chenin based but no longer!
