Semillon: 'Phil Swannell' 2009
A delicious Semillon, lighter and crisper than the Ken Bray, albeit with less fruit intensity; grass and mineral notes accompany some citrus. Definitely a wine for the cellar, under screwcap. James Halliday 96 Point wine gaining entry into James Halliday’s Holy Grail of Wine 2015.
