Other White Varietals

 

2012 Eagles Rest Dam Block Semillon  "This is a freakish wine, still with the colour of a 1yo semillon, not a 4yo. What is more, the palate lives up to the promise of the colour, incredibly fine, long and pure, with lemon, lime and grapefruit citrus flavours locked together by tightly wound acidity on the long, perfectly balanced palate. An absolute steal at the price" - James Halliday, 96 points    $24.95 per bottle

2018 Meerea Park Hell Hole Semillon      $22.95 per bottle

2016 Tahbilk Marsanne      Trophy - 2016 National Wine Show of Australia; "This 2016 version looks pretty damn good. It's a textural wine with a good sense of coiled fruit/flavour power and a general crunchiness... This is an excellent release of this iconic wine. It's routinely a steal; this year particularly so" - Campbell Mattinson, 93 points; "Tahbilk's version is a floral delight - aromas of honeydew melon, lemon and wet stones burst out of the bottle. It's zippy and fresh and there's richness to its lemon and tropical fruit flavours. Tahbilk's Marsanne is a must for every cellar" - Ben Thomas   $16.95 per bottle

1999 Tahbilk Marsanne      Jeremy Oliver - 90 points; "All it needs is time" - James Halliday, 87 points $24.50 per bottle

1992 Tahbilk Marsanne      "Truly, a miracle" - James Halliday ****; Jeremy Oliver - 89 points $29.95 per bottle

1997 Tyrrell's Lost Block Semillon      James Halliday - 91 points; Jeremy Oliver - 90 points  $29.95 per bottle

2018 Hahndorf Hill White Mischief Gruner Veltliner      Loads of exuberant aromatics and brimming with delicious citrus, spice, ruby grapefruit and stone fruit. These long and intense flavours are all held together by a juicy acidity and a gentle textural rub; Trophy - 2018 National Wine Show of Australia; Blue-Gold Award Winner at the 2005 Sydney International Wine Competition - "Fantastic length of flavour and a very precise line through the palate, very tight and very long. This more savoury style does exceptionally well with food"   $22.50 per bottle

2013 Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon  "The Emperor, shy but strident, wearing a myriad of citrus and orchard colours and a tensile sash of calm, and poise. This majestic wine's lightweight belies its sheer stretch of flavours across the palate. Energetic and gently grippy; tightly wound but bristling with mineral intent. Bottle age has softened this ever so slightly. Nothing more. An Australian classic in the making!" - James Halliday, 97 points; "There's just a whisper of toast starting up, but the wine is reserved for its age, promising to live long if cellared. Taut, dry, savoury and restrained. An excellent wine with a long future ahead of it (5 Gold medals)" - Huon Hooke, 97 points; "A powerhouse palate presenting juicy, almost sweet, citrus fruit that fills the mouth - remarkable presence for such a light wine. Subtle powdery texture and pure acidity. Length to burn. A classic Vat 1" - Gary Walsh, 96 points; "Already thrumming with complexity, loaded with lemon fruit, wax, toast and fantastic marine saltiness on the finish. Long and layered, with the sense that the petals are only just beginning to unfurl. As ever, there is huge potential here" - JancisRobinson, 17.5+ points out of 20  $69.95 per bottle

2011 Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon  "This is a beautiful Vat 1, just starting its journey towards maturity. Its balance and harmony allow it to float effortlessly along the palate and into a finish that caresses that taste buds. It will develop slowly, but give pleasure whenever it is tasted" - James Halliday, 97 points; "This wine is showing some positive aged characteristics but remains fresh and very alive and promises to live on for many more years. A superbly stylish, delicate, high-quality semillon" - Huon Hooke, 97 points; "Showing some positive age development, but not yet toasty or mature. Some aged nuances, but it's fresh and alive, and will live for many more years. A fine, delicate, top quality semillon" - Gourmet Traveller Magazine, 97 points  $76.50 per bottle

1993 Tyrrell's Vat 1 Semillon   James Halliday - 95 points; Jeremy Oliver - 95 points  $79.95 per bottle

2009 William Downie Petit Manseng      Deliciously fresh; wonderful with Thai food     $37.95 per bottle
