Sémillon

Brokenwood

Hunter Valley Sémillon 2012

Light lemon colour . Beeswax , lemongrass , lemon peel on the nose. On the palate good body, with lemon and lime notes , beeswax and a herbaceous tinge . Still fresh acidity , this comes across as really quite young still, without the honied, toasty notes you expect with age . Still quite light on its feet, elegant and relatively lean . The length is ok , and perhaps lacks a little intensity on the mid palate , but for the basic Semillon this shows well . Drink now and over the next 10 years — 19 days ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1987

Not quite up to other years of d’Yquem but still lovely of course. Lacking some acid on the finish. Overall less density and length than I was hoping. But the palate entry and overall aromatics are still incredible. — 12 days ago

Blend of 90% Semillon and 10 % Sauvignon Blanc, aged 18 months in 50% new French oak. Golden lemon color with pronounce aromas of tropical and stone fruits with toasty oak notes. On the palate flavors of melon, apple and grapefruit with sweet citrus and a touch of herbs. Medium+ length, balanced lively acidity, ending with a fruit and smoky mineral character. Tasting well now! — 21 days ago
