Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Semillon on Kangaroo Island clearly has a future. The Wally White responds to the terroir with generosity, offering up an intriguing complexity that attacks all the senses. Eye-catching medium-deep yellow in hue. Aromas of honeysuckle, beeswax and baked pear. Waves of flavour ride the mouth, concentrated, intense with abiding texture and acidity. As a 2yo it comes across as developed, but the acidity ensures a long life. Drink to 2027. Halliday Wine Companion Magazine Aug/Sept 2020
