  • TASTING NOTE: Expressive and enticing nose, citrus, red apples, white florals and a touch of musk stick sweetness. The palate is energetic with rippling acidity, well integrated with plush citrus and lovely grapefruit pithiness. 
  • ABOUT THE WINE: This single vineyard Semillon is drawn from the Fordwich Hill vineyard in the lower Hunter Valley. This area experiences slightly lower annual rainfall than the rest of the Hunter and the soils are red and volcanic producing a riper more generous style of Hunter Semillon. The fruit was fermented in stainless steel and spent a few weeks on lees before being bottled.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Andrew Thomas grew up in a wine making family in McLaren Vale and after graduating from Roseworthy he headed to the Hunter Valley to take up the role of assistant winemaker at Tyrell's.  Thomas couldn’t have asked for a better start to his career. The 13 years he spent at Tyrrell’s instilled a passion for place that remains to this day; the Hunter’s unique setting, its enigmatic signature white, Semillon, and the close-knit camaraderie between all who live and work there. Thomas had found his tribe. “The place just got under my skin,” he admits. A decade into his tenure with the Tyrrells, Thomas felt that niggling desire to make wines of his own, and despite a few choice words from Murray Tyrrell on the subject, the family rubber-stamped his ambitions—providing it didn’t impact on his day job. In 1997, Thomas released his first wine, a white from what he considered one of the Hunter’s great Semillon vineyards, Braemore (then owned and farmed by Ken Bray). Thomas left Tyrrells in 1999 to set up shop on Pokolbin’s Mistletoe Lane. Rather than looking to please every taste, Thomas chose to nail his colours to the Hunter’s two signature grape varieties, Semillon and Shiraz. He started with just two wines (a red and a white) but soon began to explore and champion the stylistic diversity that exists within his region. Today, the range can run to as many as eight or nine Semillons and nine or ten Shiraz bottlings in a single vintage, encompassing each of the Valley’s sub-regions: Pokolbin, Lovedale, Belford, Broke/Fordwich and Mount View.
