Hunter Valley Semillon is wonderful, and because of that, the winemaking behind it is usually played with a straight bat. Pick it early. Press it quick. Keep it clean. Bottle it young. This wine deviates from that ethos slightly. It's a wine that gives us a different look at this great variety. "With the Wild Semillon, we push the boundaries of conventional winemaking by fermenting a portion of the wine on skins (like a red wine) using natural or “indigenous” yeast. The aim is to create a very textural and complex style of Semillon that showcases another side of this great wine grape." - Winemaker Matt Burton We loved this take on Sem, it's textural and a little wild as the name suggests but still maintains a brilliant purity of fruit. Can't recommend it highly enough for those wanting a deeper look at Hunter Valley Semillon!

What it Tastes Like

Wild is right but the kind of wild I like! Beez wax, lemon drops. It’s almost savoury, and it's certainly striking in the palate. Gentle, clean, sparkling acidity. Some soft greenery and sherbert. Loads of charisma andbig interest factor here. Yummo!
