About

Young Angus Vinden is taking on the winemaking duties of his family business with gusto. His mission: craft interesting expressions of the Hunter Valley, make things his own way, add some bright new colours to the rich tapestry of his home region.

The Vinden Headcase Semillon comes from one of the region’s most celebrated Semillon vineyards; Somerset vineyard the site of some of Andrew Thomas’ and Brokenwood’s most cherished Semillons.

Angus’ has a little more texture and phenolic grip than your average Semillon and seriously delivers in the classic Hunter Valley ‘laser beam’ acidity. Classic but with a twist and perfect for those looking to check out the next generation of Hunter Valley producers.

What It Tastes Like

“This is one of those laser-like young semillons that really stares down the future. It’s like lemon sorbet with an infusion of fennel and woodsmoke. It’s almost slatey, it’s terribly acidic, it rushes, it drives, it persists. It’s not one for now; it needs five years at least. “ - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
