Palate Profile

The Barossa is home to some of the world’s oldest ungrafted Semillon vines and the grapes for this wine are from an ancestor vineyard in the renowned Light Pass sub-region. The low yielding ‘Barossa Ancestor Vines’ were planted more than 150 years ago. Only 11.9 hectares of vines (0.17% of the region’s plantings) over 150 years exist in the Barossa, only 3.75 hectares of which is Semillon.

Honey, Lemon, Grapefruit and hints of pineapple on the nose. Lively, fresh citrus and stonefruit on the fleshy palate with clean, fresh acidity on a long lingering finish. A seamless wine of fine acid structure and intense varietal flavours driving the length on the palate.

Critic Awards

Hand picked from a single vineyard, planted 1850s. Tense and tight Barossa floor semillon of neutral nashi pear and lemon definition, built with the structural support of old French oak barrel maturation. Coiled, taut and restrained, it projects impressive elegance while delivering enduring persistence. A cellaring special.

Made from what are surely some of the oldest vines in Australia and the world, this semillon is still young and tightly wound, only just starting to put on show what it will offer over the next decade. The palate shows a tight core of citrus well supported by a firm line of acidity which helps the wine on its way to a long and silky finish.

Waxy, lemony, nutty and floral aromas: there's a real vitality and brightness to the nose. The palate is tight, all that waxy, lemony gear drives the flavour profile, there's some lovely oak that frames up the wine, but the drive of lemony, crunchy, citrusy fruit comes to the fore. Needs some time to show its straps.
