De Iuliis Wilderness Road Semillon 2015

This wine replaces the Sunshine Vineyard Semillon which was formerly a part of the de iuliis range. With a few issues in the air, the sunset on Sunshine and the fruit from this Wilderness Road vineyard brought a new dawn. And Mike likes what he sees he tells me. The vineyard sits beside De Bortoli's on Wilderness Road, dry grown on sandy soil.

Much more aromatic than the other Semillon 2015 in the range, I did prefer this as a drink which needs food beside it and there's certainly plenty of ageing potential in it too if that's your thing.

Waxy green apple, buckets of lemon and lime goodness skip about but the apple action is where the party is at for me. Quite fat in the mouth there's lemon pith to finish.

It has the potential to cellar for the long term.

Very good.
