What the Experts Say
From ‘Victorian Highlands’ with semillon as the focus, but some other white varieties in the mix. Produced by Matt Harrop (Shadowfax).
Smells like semillon – lemon, lemon curd, dried herbs, cut grass, faint saline characters – and feels fresh and vibrant in the glass. Clean and clear in the palate, zippy with citrussy tang. Lean, racy, refreshing, touch of chalkiness in texture. Lots of merit here. Chill and drink in sun.
90/100 - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
From Semillon with a little help from Rousanne, Marsanne and Riesling grapes for some zippy acidity, this Silent Way Semillon “& Friends” blend is clean, focused and vibrant, showing preserved lemon, orange peel, and a good amount of the freshly mown lawn notes for which Semillon is famous.
Naturally fermented with minimal intervention, but there’s no farmhouse funk here, just a hint of an intriguing accent.
