Tyrrells HVD Single Vineyard Semillon 2010
The HVD vineyard was planted in 1908. Despite a touch of spritz, this has started down its development path with the first hint of honey joining the lively, tangy, lemon/lemongrass flavours, the acidity crisp and reassuring. Drink by: 2030; Price: $35.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2015; Alcohol: 11%; Rating: 95 Points and Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

De Iuliis Hunter Valley Semillon 2015
Has everything you could ask for in a young Hunter Valley semillon: bright straw-green hue, a lemongrass and citrus bouquet, then a long, intense palate built on the foundation of natural acidity. The whole life of the wine lies before it, as the citrus becomes honeyed, and finally some toasty nuances will appear. Rating: 95 Points; Drink by: 2030; Price: $19; Date Tasted: Sept 2015; Alcohol: 10.5%; Top 100 Wines of 2015 - James Halliday; Weekend Australian

Brokenwood Semillon 2014
A very good example of the vintage, with what I call squeaky acidity, which catches the tongue and cheeks as you roll the wine around the mouth, the opposite to crisp or crunchy; it accompanies Meyer lemon, lemongrass and lemon zest. Rating: 94 Points; Drink by: 2024; Price: $25.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2015; Alcohol: 11%; James Halliday Wine Companion

Mount Pleasant Cellar Release Elizabeth Semillon 2007
Cellar Aged. Gleaming yellow-gold; eight gold medals between '07 and '13 speak for themselves. It is now near its peak, acidity its best friend, the fruit a mix of lemongrass and dried grass. It will develop even greater depth, so don't look this remarkable gift horse in the mouth right now. Rating: 94 Points; Drink by: 2022; Price: $19; Date Tasted: Sept 2015; Alcohol: 11%; Top 100 Wines of 2015 - James Halliday; Weekend Australian
