About The Wine

With over a decade's worth of experience making wine in the Hunter Valley, it's fair to say Liz Silkman knows how to handle Semillon.

This is a top-flight example of this unique Australian wine style. Made from early picked premium fruit, this is a tightly wound and powerful white wine with a long life ahead of it.

James Halliday was blown away with this release rating it 97 points & Best Semillon in the 2018 Wine Companion. One of the very best Semillon wines released from this vintage.

It's mouthwatering, it's intense, it's everything Hunter Valley Semillon should be.

About Silkman Wines

Liz and Shaun Silkman run a tight ship in the Hunter Valley.

Since their debut Silkman vintage in 2013, they have made some of the most awarded wines in their region through focusing their efforts on smart, modern winemaking guided by premium fruit.

The range is small yet high class across the board. Without a doubt one of the future icons of the Hunter Valley.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Bright straw-green; brimful of crushed lemon, lemon juice, lime juice and lemongrass aromas, the flavours rushing along the same path. A celebration of exuberant modern semillon, presumably using carefully selected yeast." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?
