This staple of the Ashbrook range is once again proving immensely popular at the cellar door.  Packed with flavour and freshness it is ideal for summer drinking now and as usual will reward those who can wait five or more years with stunning complexity.

The wine has an elegant, fresh fruity aroma with overtones of cut grass. The palate is clean and flavoursome with a pleasant fruit sweetness in the middle palate and a crisp, refreshing finish. This wine demonstrates the excellent palate structure of Semillon. Its cleanness and freshness make it an excellent accompaniment to seafood dishes, but it will go with most dishes where freshness is highlighted. It is an excellent food wine. A lovely wine to drink in its youth, the elegant flavour and excellent balance will ensure it will age well for many years. A recent review of the Ashbrook 1989 Semillon remarked that it still had a couple of years for enjoyment. The use of Stelvin screw caps has kept the wine fresh and vibrant and removes any chance of cork taint.

Picked on 16 and 23 Feb from a combination of estate blocks and trellis systems, no frills cool fermentation. The pale green hue is excellent, and the wine has the particular power of fully ripened Margaret River semillon. It will be a trusty warrior in the years to come.
