  • TASTING NOTE: "The 2019 Sémillon 1850 Ancestor Vine, made with fruit from vines planted before 1850, opens up with precise, youthful melon and citrus aromas, plus a distinctive touch of beeswax and lanolin. Lightweight and acid-driven with a well-placed touch of grip, it delivers a textural experience punctuated by zesty acidity through to a silky, fine and surprisingly lengthy finish. It is definitely built to last and worth waiting a decade to enjoy." 93 Points - Angus Hughson, Vinous.com
  • ABOUT THE WINE: The Cirillo 1850 Semillon is harvested entirely of a single vineyard in the Light Pass region in the Barossa Valley believed to be the oldest Semillon (Madeira) vineyard in the world. It is one of the few remaining Madeira vineyards left in Australia. This is why it is released under the Semillon varietal name, as opposed to the Madeira region. Picked early in the season, normally in mid‐late January, it is harvested with great acidity. The fruit is handpicked and basket pressed. The wine is then tank fermented, without oak.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: The Cirillo family moved to the small district of Light Pass in 1970. Vincent Cirillo became the custodian of some exceptional vineyards that were planted in 1848 - today they are noted to be the oldest surviving and producing Grenache and Semillon parcels in the world. Vincent's son Marco is the current custodian of these spectacular basket pruned vines. Marco’s wines are (and always have been) made with minimal intervention and additions, with lots of whole bunch and carbonic influences. However, you won’t catch him using said buzzwords!
