This pungent, pristine Sémillon entices with scents of lemon curd and orange blossom. Dense and lively on the palate, it conveys a subtle touch of honeyed sweetness to its juicy flavors of citrus peel, white stone fruits, flowers and minerals. The palate-dusting finish is long and alive. $21.00 (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, October 2019) — 3 days ago
Very surprised when I opened the wine list. My inner geek took over when I saw it was the same wine I consumed last week but a different vintage. A much less open and complex nose than the’11.
In the mouth this wine demonstrated greater freshness ￼than the ‘11. Grapefruit like acidity put the fruit flavors at the forefront. Once again I was a little disappointed with the finish but I think in this case the wine truly needs time to unwind￼. — 25 days ago

Pale to mid Gold in colour. Aromas of wet hay and lemon with some nutty notes developing. On the palate early stages of honeyed characters developing amongst the grapefruit and brisk acidity. An excellent Semillon from the relatively new viticultural area of the South Burnett, 3 hours drive northwest of Brisbane which you would think would be too hot and humid for quality viticulture but Semillon does well in humid warmer climes like the Hunter Valley for example. At the 2016 Queensland Wine Show this wine won 2 Trophies. Could be cellared for many years. — 19 days ago
Monthly WTF group recap. Theme this month was “bring something special”. Normally we taste all of the wines blind, but we decided to do a relaxed night with amazing wines at a great restaurant. Spectacular evening!
If you aren’t familiar with this label, it’s a unique concept. The winery is located in Fredericksburg, TX yet the wines are from all over the world (fruit is cold shipped to the winery or made in the country they are sourced from). This is probably best now or over the next few years. It has typical orange blossom and honey notes, with a very creamy mid palate...like an orange creamsicle. Lots of sweetness without much nuttiness. — 8 days ago
Wow. All I got to say is this tastes like like a Kodak dark room developer dropped into a stop bath and your friend dared you to chug it. Lights out. Break the light bulb and chew the glass your mouth is full of blood and the finish feels like the beginning of a heavy mushroom trip. Body full of ants with no gravity. Hail satin. A+ — 3 days ago
