2018 Glenguin Vineyard Semillon

Highly Rated
Highly reviewed Hunter Valley Semillon at a snip of a price. 95 points from both GT WINE and Huon Hooke.

Sale price$19.00


This is a fantastic buy for any lover of Hunter Semillon or, really, any dry white.

The crisp, clean flavours of lemon and lime with a zesty, crystalline finish are built perfectly for matching with seafood. Glenguin Estate has absolutely nailed this release.

For under $20 a bottle, this will drink beautifully from day one. However, if you enjoyed the honeyed, toasty flavours of Hunter Semillon with a little age, this will mature beautifully for at least the next decade.

With excellent reviews from both Huon Hooke and Gourmet Traveller WINE, at this price, you won't be disappointed.

From the 3-acre Semillon block in Broke comes our 2018 Glenguin Vineyard Semillon.

First planted in 1993 with cuttings from some of the Hunter Valley's most respected Semillon vineyards (including HVD, Stevens and Braemore) with lineage which stretches back to the first plantings of Semillon in Australia at Kirkton by James Busby.

Sandy loam over red basalt soils provides the perfect environment for Semillon to thrive.

95 Points - "Light straw-yellow colour. The aromas are superbly fresh and intense, youthful and bright, with herb and lemon aromas of real charm. The palate is juicy and ripe, fresh and clean and bright, with delicious lemon and herb and a compelling juiciness. It's fresh, youthful, reserved and not at all austere or tight. The acidity is perfectly balanced, the wine is eminently drinkable now and will certainly age well. A seriously good young semillon." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

95 Points - "This is a seriously good semillon, just starting to open up and drink well, and will continue to do so for many years. The palate is juicy and ripe, fresh and clean and bright, with delicious lemon/herb fruit and a compelling juiciness. Already eminently drinkable." - GT WINE

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.


If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
