Description

Our 20th vintage of our dry Sémillon, with a little Sauvignon, from seriously old vines. Exotic and full in 2019.

One of many wines in the 'Specials' list at the top of page with volume discounts now: 6 x 6 bottle cases in all = 7.5%, 10 x 6 = 12%, 16 x 6 = 17% off.

The back label: ’This was our 20th vintage of Les Trois Hectares, from a single seven acre block of 80% Sémillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc vines that were planted in 1947. It is an aromatic dry white that is great with food, or simply on its own. 13.5%.”

Because the old vines are all jumbled up, we call it a 'field blend'. It's certainly the most powerful dry Sémillon we've made. It's a grape that's normally lower in alcohol than Sauvignon Blanc, and while the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is at 13% alcohol by volume, this is over 13.5%. Woof.

2014 vintage:

“Broad, just as Sémillon should be – textural and waxy – not very grassy, but there are a few bits of herb in there. Then quite a dense, viscous finish. This shares a lot of the qualities of young Hunter Valley Smillon – I wonder if it would develop those same toasty aromas? 12%

Drink 2015-2020 16.5/20”

Richard Hemming MW (Master of Wine), JancisRobinson.com, December 2015

Earlier vintages:

“An absolute steal. Oz Clarke is a fan and it’s served in Rick Stein’s restaurant too. This is one of the best white wines I’ve had this year.”

Richard Saxton, Stylist magazine

“The blend here is Semillon 80% and Sauvignon Blanc 20%, mirroring the mix in the vineyard. There are some slightly herby, musky elements here from the Sauvignon Blanc, but this is otherwise very different to the straight Sauvignon, showing more firm and crunchy fruit. The most apparent characteristic on the palate… is the delicious acid backbone, which gives the palate a vigorous lift. There are notes of white peach, and underneath some early suggestions of more honeyed, toasty elements. Lovely substance here. Great wine. 16.5/20”
