This pale-gold Semillon offers much of the pithy, waxy lemon, dried herb and damp straw notes typical to the variety and region. The palate is less generous on the fruit front with the acidity feeling a bit forced, but the finish has a lovely slippery texture and some length. This wine could shine with the right food, like a herb-laced chevre.
Wine Tasting Notes
A classic example of what this variety can achieve in a warm maritime climate. Ashbrook Estate Margaret River Semillon is made in an unwooded style to retain and enhance varietal fruit freshness. Staggered harvesting of fruit from a combination of estate sites and trellising systems allows expression of a spectrum of aromas and flavors from sweet grassiness to punchy ripe citrus in the finished wine. This complexity also provides exceptional structure and palate weight with considerable ageing potential. Cellaring for five or more years is rewarded with rich complex nut, straw and toast characters in harmony with ripe lemon and sweet grassy nuances while still retaining a pleasantly surprising level of freshness, vibrancy and length.
