Twisted Gum Verdelho Semillon 2021

 

Tim and Michelle Coelli run a cute cellar door and rely on their 3 hectare site to supply all their fruit. With testing weather conditions in recent years, they've pushed on resisting to buy in fruit. Here they have combined two white varieties rarely paired with one another. It's a neat summertime drink.

Ridgemill Estate Hungry Horse CDW 2021

 

I do laugh every time I see Hungry Horse on a Ridgemill Estate label. Winemaker Peter McGlashan first released this wine as a red blend back in 2012 and shared a funny story about the name. There is now a classic dry white to match its sibling. The Hungry Horse is a story about bludging relief teacher and a problem-solving task set to kill time. Hands up who had one of those dodgy relief teachers.

Carillion Origins Old Grafts Semillon 2021

 


A curious name for a wine given the 'Old Grafts' are vine cuttings from the famed Braemore vineyard. Old Cuttings may be more suitable? Oh, to quibble about nonsense...

Lloyd's Block Chardonnay Semillon 2018

 

Nothing flamboyant nor extravagant, but if a reliable white wine is what you seek, perhaps this is worth a look.

As with all Tyrrell's aged Semillons, they show so much vitality and freshness. A brilliant Vat 1 release once again.

A fabulous Hunter Valley aged Semillon. A museum release from Gundog Estate, this runs deep before asking some questions and then pulling you in closer. Superb!

Golden Grove Estate Chardonnay Semillon NV

 

A curious blend of Chardonnay and Semillon that just works. Throw it at a roast chicken dusted with rosemary wine.
