Coming from Block 12 of our historic Golden Mile Bench vineyard, the vines of our 2022 Storied Series Sémillon were planted in 1997 and 1998. The grapes for this small-lot wine were hand harvested and meticulously sorted before being gently whole cluster pressed. The free-run juice was settled for two days, then racked into stainless steel tanks for a 32-day-long fermentation at 12°C. Once fermentation was completed, this 2022 vintage was aged for four months on fine lees to develop a pleasing mouthfeel before being bottled on February 9th, 2023.

Our 2022 Storied Series Sémillon expresses a seamless complexity to delight the senses. Aromas of lemon balm greet the nose, with a touch of fresh herbs and a streak of minerality. The palate is driven by a crisp, citrus note, followed by a round mouthfeel of mild coconut and a lingering finish. Pair our 2022 Sémillon with a seafood dish of seared scallops and lemon prawns.

95 | Sem. Gently floral/aromatic, light bodied, fresh and simple with a tickle of apparent sweetness but a clean, balanced finish. Very good line and length.

96 | Ripe beeswaxy, dried hay aroma. Off-dry? A big, rich style. Tinned mandarin segments. Super unusual but lots of character. Long persistent finish.

88 | waxy peach leesy, pineapple and sweet Meyer lemon. the wine is fresh and acid-driven, zesty spicy and green apple notes of peach gummies and a spicy finish that is a bit loud and noisy, could find better cohesion and expression.

95 | High toned lime aromas. Ripe passion fruit flavours. Spirited and lively. Fabulous intensity and long.
