  • Ranked #1 of 18 Margaret River Semillon blends tasted - huonhooke.com 4/3/17

"Slightly reductive aroma with a mineral, smoky, 'crushed rock' aroma. The wine is fresh and crisp, tangy and lively on the tongue, with excellent flavour and minerality. It has more than a suggestion of Sancerre about it. Lovely wine, much more than simplistic fruit​." Drink 2017 - 2022, 4.5 stars, 93 points.  - Huon Hooke, huonhooke.com March 2017.

2015 Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc

"Bright, light to medium yellow colour, with a slight savoury, nutty note of barrel fermentation. The wine is rich and intense, with good fruit concentration skilfully balanced with some oak inputs. The finish is long, savoury, dry, balanced and resonant. Properly ripe grapes. Excellent wine." 4.5 stars, 93 points - Huon Hooke, Huonhooke.com 29/8/2016

  • 90 points - James Halliday, 2017 Australian Wine Companion

2014 Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc

"A 65/35% blend from estate grown fruit, 40% aged in new French oak for two months. Lovely depth of fruit, with an added textural element from the oak ageing. Citrus and herbal notes with a fresh, mineral finish. Drink 2015-2018. Decanter Magazine Margaret River 2015 Lift-out "Dream Dozen; great white Bordeaux blends from the 2014 vintage"

"Low-cropping 20-year-old vines have produced an intensely flavoured 65/35% blend with an added dimension ex French oak maturation. There are grassy/ herbal notes ex the semillon, tropical ex the sauvignon blanc – the two strands seamlessly bound together. The wine will gain from two years’ maturation. - 93 points" James Halliday's Wine Companion, top value wines under $20.00

"The best Semillon Sauvignon Blend we’ve tasted in some time. Searing freshness combines with real depth of tangy flavour, great line and length, benchmark SSB, will improve for 2-3 years. 94 points. Bargain BUY." Kim Brebach, www.bestwinesunder20.com.au

"Just a little dab of French oak has added the finishing touches to this wine. Tropical herbaceous primary fruit characters have the lemon oak influence to thank for pushing it to another level of interest. Clean fruit and a balanced crisp finish. Nice wine - 92 points." – Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2015

2013 Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc

◦GOLD 2013 Small Vigneron Awards

"A 65/35% estate-grown blend, 40% matured (not fermented) in 100% new French oak for 12 months. Over the years the wine has won numerous gold medals, and more than a few trophies - this a gold medal at Winewise '13. The thoroughly unconventional vinification works well, leaving the focus on the sweet, fleshy citrus/lemon and tropical fruits, bolstered by very good mouthfeel. Great value - 95 points". James Halliday, July 27 2014

"Green citrus, spring onion spicy and hint of nutmeg. Structure. Tightness. Viscosity. Intensity. Very balanced. Pessac-Leognan like. ****" CH'NG Poh Tiong , Decanter China March 2014

2012 Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc

  • GOLD & TROPHY 2013 Boutique Wine Awards
  • GOLD 2013 National Cool Climate Wine Show

"A complex and classy SSB. There's mandarin and lemon zest with herby grassy notes, all backboned by a firm structure and a silky smooth texture thanks to a lick of oak." - Gold Medal (95 points)- Scoop Magazine blind tasting, Spring Issue 2013

"An estate-grown 65/35% blend, 40% matured in new French oak for two months; a consistent winner of show awards over the last seven vintages. This wine has a tightly focused and structured palate with grass, herb and lemon zest to the ore, and the barest hint of toasty oak. It has considerable length, and will cellar well. Exceptional value. 520 dozen made. - 93 points" - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2013

"Light yellow colour. Nutty and spicy aromas suggesting a hint of barrel, over savoury and only lightly herbal fruit. Light but intense, dry and long. I like the savouriness of this style. It's not a fruity wine by any means. The flavours would not pall." Huon Hooke, Huon Hooke.com Aug 2013

"The influence of French oak leaves quite a statement on the nose. It certainly adds to the distinctive character and works neatly with the lemon dominance of the Semillon. Balanced and crisp with a racy acid to the long finish. A wine that will work well over the next few years." – Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2013

2011 Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc

◦GOLD 2015 Margaret River Wine Show

◦SILVER 2014 Royal Perth Wine Show

◦SILVER 2013 Royal Perth Wine Show

◦SILVER 2012 Decanter World Wine Awards

"Light to medium yellow hue, youthful for its age, and a fresh salad-leafy aroma, with some green herb notes as well. Chervil. The palate has a trace of spritz as well as a touch of grip. It’s a nicely shaped and balanced wine. Very intense, and also very appealing in the mouth. It concludes with a touch of spice. Lovely drinking dry white, still fresh and young at five years" 4.5 stars, 93 points, ranked #3 out of 32 Margaret River 2011 Semillon blends tasted. - Huon Hooke, Huonhooke.com 29/8/2016

"It’s museum release and it shows how long-lived these SSB blends can be. It’s still quite fresh and crisp, with more complexity than the younger whites, and more texture from a touch of French oak. 94 points. BUY. Kim Brebach, May 2016, www.bestwinesunder20.com.au

"A tight and somewhat bracing SSB made along classic Margaret River lines. I like the intensity of the fruit and the gentleness of the acid. It all seems to sit so well together. A little French oak has brought a level of sophistication to the wine which elevates it to another level. An excellent wine for the next few years. - 93 points" - Ray Jordan, The West Australian Fresh, March 29 2012

2010 Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc

◦SILVER 2011 Decanter World Wine Awards

◦SILVER MEDAL 2010 Sheraton Wine Awards

◦SILVER 2010 Royal Perth Wine Show

◦SILVER 2010 Margaret River Wine Show

"This quiet achiever from Margaret River excels, and here is a classy example of the regions most famous blend; intense and focussed, showing crunchingly pure-white tropical flavours, a hint of spicy oak and a vibrant zippy finish." – Peter Forrestal, STM Magazine February 6th, 2011

"This was still just so tight at the time of tasting but looked unbelievably promising. There's a small amount of french oak in there, which works perfectly with the grassy herbal and subtle lemon tropical fruits. A well made wine that will improve." - 92 points – Ray Jordan, The West Australian, 7th Oct 2010

2009 Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc

◦SILVER 2009 Royal Perth Wine Show

"Takes the approach of the Sauvignon Blanc one step further, due in part to the 65% Semillon component, and also maturation in oak. Has good length, structure and persistence of flavour in a white Bordeaux style." - 94 points – James Halliday

2008 Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc

◦GOLD 2008 Royal Hobart Wine Show

◦SILVER 2009 International Wine Challenge

"Slight coffee notes with fresh lemon and nettles on nose. Dry full and herbal on palate, fresh with good length." International Wine Challenge

2007 Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc

◦GOLD 2007 Small Winemakers Show

◦SILVER 2007 Qantas Wine Show

◦SILVER 2008 Royal Sydney Wine Show

"Another quality wine from this small producer, highly vegetal lifted aromas of cut zucchini and tomato leaf. Also sweet hits - lemon drops and fruit sherbet. Buttery oak complexity provides a foundation for a seamless green fruit palate with firm finish. A shining example of crafted wine. Poised." Spice Magazine

2006 Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc

◦GOLD & TROPHY 2007 Decanter World Wine Awards

◦TOP OF CLASS 2007 Boutique Wine Awards

◦SILVER 2007 International Wine Challenge

"Fine, elegant, long and fresh; a seamless flow of fruit and a light touch of barrel ferment French oak. Top class and great value". Rating 93 points, drink to 2010 – James Halliday

"The 2006 vintage was the coolest on record, giving the award winning wine both good flavour and acid backbone, though perhaps atypical of the area. It is a fresh, early drinking wine with complexity thanks to some well-managed oak, and goes well with seafood. We’re thinking crayfish and scallops" – Decanter.com

2005 Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc

◦GOLD 2006 Royal Sydney Wine Show

◦SILVER 2005 Qantas Mt Barker Show

"More than a decade of hard work is paying off for the Allan and Scott families. This is their best SSB yet, with greater intensity than before, attractive tropical fruit flavours, a hint of grassiness,fresh, zesty and vibrant." – Peter Forrestal

2005 Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc Reserve

◦Silver 2008 Margaret River Wine Show

◦Silver 2008 Australian Small Winemakers Show

"A very sophisticated blend with powerful fruit intensity merged with a seamless touch of French oak. Excellent balance with nice acid to finish. A wine that will continue to improve. Rating 90 points" – Ray Jordan

"Parsley and snapped twig herbal aromas; a lacing of nutty French oak which solices well with the regional fruit flavour. Good weight, depth, and a firm dry finish." – Huon Hooke
