About

Along with Marco Cirillo's famous old vine Grenache, this Cirillo 1850 Old Vine Semillon comes from what most agree to be the oldest Semillon vines in the world. Making wine since the 1850's is no mean feat and as Marco points out, demonstrates the obvious quality of this unique Light Pass single vineyard. Marco picks and bottles this fruit very early, with the aim to retain acidity and freshness at a lower alcohol level. He wants to give the wine time in the bottle to develop into the beautiful, lemony, zesty, honeyed butterfly it is today. The previous vintage received a whopping 95 points from James Halliday and this is another ripper. Tiny volumes made as you'd expect but simply a must try for any lover of Semillon or those looking for a special piece of Australian wine history.

What it Tastes Like

"Grown from possibly the oldest Semillon vines in the world. This wine shows a classic Semillon nose of lemon and limes, whilst on the palate it is beautifully balanced with mineral & citrus flavours, a great length of fruit, and a soft, approachable acid structure." - Marco Cirillo
