Tasting Notes :


Fashioned with the savory, food friendly dry whites of Southern France in mind,
the Woodcutter’s Semillon is the ideal tonic after a long day in the vineyard.
 Medium bodied with a pristine lemon hue this
youthful Semillon offers delicate scents of lime,
melted butter, candle wax, and toasted brioche.
 The copper-pink skins of this robust, age-old ‘Madeira Clone’ flesh out the palate,
lending notes of tropical pineapple, roasted cashew and white peach.
 Underlying notes of citrus oil and minerals maintain
the wines freshness whilst a crisp spine of
razor-like acidity neatly lace together the finish and provide length.
 Although beautifully enjoyable in its youth with sashimi
and fresh shellfish this wine will continue

to increase in complexity with time and will

provide compelling drinking over the coming years with chicken and pasta.

Critical Acclaim :

 James Suckling reviewed.
This shows the greatness of the vintage with graphite, stone,
oyster shell, blackberry, and licorice.
 Smoke undertone. Full body yet linear and energetic with a fabulous finish.
 A stunning wine. Great value for the quality. Drink now.
