Semillon performs best when days are long and warm with cool nights, giving the berries with much needed downtime. The other thing directly linked to quality is how many grapes the vines are asked to deliver. If you aren't careful you'll end up with a shed load of grapes with no character. But if yields are restricted you can produce wines full of character that are concentrated and balanced. Legend Steve Grimley used his unparalleled contacts to unearth a small parcel of delicious, citrus-fresh Semillon.
Steve Grimley has vast winemaking experience that spans 3 continents and an unbridled energy that has seen his small, family-owned winery quickly establish an enviable reputation. He's passionate about Single Vineyards and the personalities involved within them and constantly seeking unique parcels of fruit to further expand our bulging portfolio of wines. His immense knowledge of the great wines of the world ensures the continued evolution of our range and is the fuel from which our fire is lit.
"To me, a truly great wine is more about the sizzle than the sausage. I grew up in the Barossa, so wine's pretty much part of your culture from day one. Given our type of business, the styles of wine we make and my individual personality, all these combine to drive us down the 'winemaking way of one'. It's easy to manipulate, but when you leave things alone they just represent what they are - the variety, origin and working patterns, stored in a bottle." - Steve Grimley
From an Aussie with generations of winemaking experience comes this characteristic Hunter Valley Semillon. Centred on bright lime and lemon fruit and still very much in its youth, these citrus fruits are bracingly beautiful, to say the least.
A refreshing creation from Barossa territory - a place capable of huge, fruit-bomb reds, but with this new Semillon we prove the regions worth in the world of whites! This wine is great for ageing a year or two, but beautifully fresh and bracing right now.
For those who have not tried white Rioja (why not?!) - you are in for a treat! Hand-crafted and with a combination of flavour profiles that are simply genius, it's a wonder how this family-owned winery managed it!
