“Over the years, Ashbrook has consistently produced a most drinkable semillon and this is another. Loads of deep tropical fruit held with typical semillon restraint. A trace of light herbaceousness and a little varietal citrus hangs in there to focus and define the finish. Really clean and flavoursome at the same time in the mouth. A lovely example of a style we really should drink more of. 92 Points” Ray Jordan – The West Australian Wine Guide 2016
A classic example of what this variety can achieve in a warm maritime climate. 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 flavours 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.
