White California Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Really enjoyed this. The mouthfeel/texture, higher acidity and lower abv (12%) caught me by surprise. Would have thrown me a serious curveball in a blind. — a month ago


Grande Reserve Sauternes 2016

Sweet aroma. Complexity which makes me enjoy it only from one drop. Not too sweet. According to sommelier, this is brought by semillon 100%. @, K Varies, 190207 — 14 days ago

Tyrrell's Wines

Vat 1 Hunter Valley Semillon 2000

Pale straw yellow still
Great intensity
Maybe a bit too green
There's some lime, even in a jelly kind of expression, lemongrass, spring onions
Lanolin very prominent
I'd a bit one dimensional
I hope just too young, but it could have been harvested too early too
It comes from a dry vintage which is a good one in Hunter
I dunno I like it yes, but I am not fully convinced as I was last time I tasted this vintage. It will last yes, but I am not 100% sure where it will go
I am being very peaky still cause I drank a full bottle during the tennis final last night

Château d'Yquem

Y Ygrec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

The 2015 'Y' from Chateau D’YQuem is a head turning, simply brilliant blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The Sauvignon Blanc is harvested rather early in the growing season to retain its freshness, while the Semillon is given more time to mature and allow botrytis to take effect. The wine itself displays a lovely golden hue, and begins with an exotic bouquet consisting of star jasmine, honeydew melon, starfruit and lemongrass aromatics which all take shape. On the palate this possesses remarkable tension and viscosity, which is truly one of a kind as the mouthfeel takes on a sultry, unctuous character as lemon cream, kumquat, cantaloupe and roasted pineapple flavors all come together beautifully. It continues to impress with its gorgeous seamless quality and balance while showcasing the ripeness and intensity of the vintage. While this is already showing trememdous appeal it should go on to age exceedingly well over the course of the next two plus decades. This is a absolute gem from the legendary Château.

Sadie Family

T'Voetpad White Blend 2017

Herbs and peach on the nose with quince; the semillon comes thru clearly on the palate, just oily in texture adding to the finish; but this deserves a year or two more in bottle. — 6 days ago
