Tyrrells Stevens Single Vineyard Semillon 2011
Pour a glass of this for the unwary, and half will think it's a cool climate riesling, the lemon juice acidity suggesting the Eden Valley as one possibility, Porongurup another. It is really hard to spit out, and I console myself thinking it's only 11% alcohol as I sneak a micro-swallow. Drink by: 2026; Price: $35.00; Date Tasted: March 2016; Alcohol: 11%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

De Iuliis Hunter Valley Semillon 2016
The basic semillon release for '16 by De Iuliis, but winning a gold medal at the Sydney Wine Show '16. The crossover with 1yo riesling can confuse, but the acidity is more pronounced, the lemongrass notes are peculiar to semillon and, as they age, the wines will adopt different personalities. Drink by: 2013; Price: $19.99; Date Tasted: Sept 2016; Alcohol: 10.9%; Rating: 95 Points; Top 100 Wines of 2016 - James Halliday; Weekend Australian

Mount Pleasant Elizabeth Semillon 2016
Pretty as an absolute picture. Well. It’s a beauty. It’s ultra young and yet it’s drinking ultra well. It tastes of stones and citrus, slate and (whispers of) lemongrass. It’s dry to the point of sturdiness, acidic in a mellifluous way. There’s a slight spritz but it’s nothing to worry about. It’s long. One sip and I was hooked. Tasted: Nov 2016; Alcohol: 10%; Price: $27; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2016-2024; Rating: 94 Points; Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front
