Lovedale Sémillon 1998

Lunch with friends at home on Saturday. Thanks for bringing this aged gem @Jim Hunter Mid gold in colour. It’s amazing how Semillon puts on weight as it ages. Lanolin and beeswax - you would swear this was aged in oak barrels but it is stainless steel all the way. Not as complex as other old Lovedales or Tyrrells Vat 1 I have had but still impressive. More gold medals than Michael Phelps!! — 20 days ago

Margaret Limited Release Barossa Sémillon 2012

At the Peter Lehmann Dinner at the Downs Club. Interesting to compare this top quality Barossa Semillon with the Hunter Valley style. These are more approachable young (from the warm valley floor) than the searing acidity of young HV Semillon. Soapy lanolin nose with notes of beeswax and a blue cheese component. Fuller on the palate than HV Sems. Zero oak influence. Very good. We also had the 2010 of this wine but I didn’t get a photo unfortunately. It had more lanolin, wet straw and beeswax than the 2012 with at least another 5 years in front of it. Giving it 95 points and a Gold Medal. The 2005 is still winning Trophies at Wine Shows around the country. — 22 days ago

Château Loubens

Sainte-Croix-du-Mont Sémillon 1975

JKT
9.1

Finally hit the jackpot! Third and fourth bottles with clan 11/30/19 as gathering breaks off with half leaving. What a perfect match to real fois gras from Wilson. Everyone agrees and some found out belatedly a little goes a long way. Four more to go and also found another 75 Sauternes. Rated with leftover second bottle and yes each bottle different. Third bottle least oxidized and complex and in balance. — 7 days ago
