2018 First Creek Wine­maker’s Re­serve Semil­lon

Halliday - - Semillon -

Wine­maker: Liz Silk­man

Pale straw in colour, with vi­brant cit­rus aro­mas. Our Semil­lon dis­plays flavours of lime pith, lead­ing to a seam­less acid back­bone, giv­ing the wine great line and length.

What do you look for in your semil­lon?

Good bal­ance, fresh up­front flavours of cit­rus, par­tic­u­larly lemon and lime, and good line and length.

What do you think makes semil­lon so spe­cial?

Semil­lon has a long his­tory in Aus­tralia with the first plant­ings dat­ing back too the early 1900s and it is one of the most un­der­rated grape va­ri­eties in the coun­try. This va­ri­ety is delicious while young and fresh, but equally has fan­tas­tic longevity and age­ing po­ten­tial. Chilled semil­lon is the per­fect ac­com­pa­ni­ment to fresh prawns and shucked oys­ters, par­tic­u­larly on a sum­mer af­ter­noon.
