About

The Chase Semillon is about the never-ending pursuit of purity for Matt Burton when making Hunter Valley Semillon.

Here he takes his best old vine Semillon, ferments only the cleanest and most vibrant juice and bottles it after four months on light lees. The 2016 version is possibly his best to date.

It received the Top Gold at the 2016 National Wine Show as the best Semillon in its class. It was also rated an outstanding 96 points by James Halliday - the highest rating of this wine to date.

Hunter Semillon fans, this is classic in the best possible way. Drink now or cellar with confidence.

What It Tastes Like

“The Chase is of absolute purity of varietal expression, the opposite of Gundog’s Wild Semillon. Here the first 500 litres (of 700+) per tonne of juice are cold-settled to star brightness before racking and fermentation with a neutral cultured yeast. Yet its bouquet surges out of the glass with lemongrass/hay aromas, the palate then imprinting its suite of flavours for a seeming eternity. Small wonder it won a gold medal at the Hunter Valley Wine Show ‘16, making light of the challenges of the vintage.” - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
