MIDNIGHT’S PROMISE SEMILLON

In the Hunter Valley, unwooded Semillon is a WYSIWYG wine – What You See Is What You Get!

Harvested early and bottled early without any barrel maturation any shortcoming is obvious. We waited 15 years for the Semillon block to be sufficiently mature. What a debut for our first wine made in 2013! Awarded a Gold Medal at the local show and then “rave reviews”.

The 2014, 2015 and 2017 Semillons have followed suit – each of the classic style but showing vintage variation.

Our Semillons represent a great vertical chronology of how Hunter Valley Semillon develops with bottle age: mixed Semillon dozens are no problem!

Winestate magazine – September 2015
