97 Pts / Best of the Best Semillon, James Halliday Wine Companion 2020
"Already tasted several times on its path towards maturity. Initially Meyer lemon and lemongrass rode on a chariot of acidity that swept all before it. Now, as notes of honey and toast emerge, the pace of development is slowing, allowing time for all the flavours and textural complexity to take centre stage."
"At 6 years of age on release, the colour is just starting to show some development with yellow tints complimenting the green edges. Lifted almond bread and the floral notes heading to bees wax and toast. Lively lime juice, Bickford cordial characters and backed by a superb zesty acidity. The magic of Hunter Valley Semillon on display with texture, fruit weight and great length from a wine that sees no oak. The ILR Reserve Semillon is released from the best years and this is a beauty."
