About

Barossa Semillon is a different beast to the classic 'line and length' Hunter creature but no less intriguing. David Franz (aka Dave Lehmann) is a huge champion of this variety from the Barossa, a love that was instilled in him by his mother, Marg. He vividly remembers the Summers spent with mum with a glass of _Sem_ in hand and that makes this wine one of the most sentimental and precious in the David Franz range. From 125-year-old vines with a suitable amount of barrel ferment and aging and a release date that allows the wine to develop a little before finding its way to the punter. It's a lovely wine that James Halliday says "Honours mother Margaret Lehmann and her love of semillon, and does so handsomely." in his 95 point review of the 2012 release.

What it Tastes Like

"Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, 15% barrel-fermented in used French oak, the balance in stainless steel, on completion kept at 4C for 12 months. Honours mother Margaret Lehmann and her love of semillon, and does so handsomely. It fills the mouth with fully ripe varietal fruit enhanced by a hint of the barrel ferment component; the result is a complete wine that doesn't demand patience, but will run whatever course you set it." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
