From one of South Australia's talented small batch producers, this medium gold-hued Semillon sees time on full lees in barrel. It's simultaneously rich and refreshing, with a rush of heady aromas of raw wildflower honey, apple and pear flesh, citrus and beeswax. The palate is round, waxy-textured and concentrated, lifted by gorgeously mouthwatering acidity that carries the orchard fruit, waxy citrus and gingery spice to a lengthy finish. A wine bursting with personality, charm and class. Christina Pickard

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.

The wines of the region have been described as having the potential to combine the structure and finesse of the Old world wines with the approachable fruit and ripeness of the New World style. Our Columbia Valley Wine Ratings illustrate the improvement in quality of these wines over the last decade or so. The main white grape varietals grown in the region are Chardonnay and Riesling which are discernible by their vibrant fruit and crisp acidity. The red varietals are predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with a recent increase in Syrah particularly in the Columbia Valley sub region Walla Walla. It was the Merlot craze of the 1990s that sparked the…
