Description

2015 Glenguin Estate Glenguin Vineyard Semillon

Our vines were taken as cuttings from the oldest Semillon vineyards in the Hunter Valley and are approaching 25 years of age. All the labour is done by hand – hand training, hand picking and hand pruning with yields around 2.5tonnes per acre. The juice is cold settled then fermented in stainless steeland left on lees for 4 months before bottling. Tropical notes dominate, balanced by natural acidity. This is a classic Hunter Valley Semillon, drinking fresh while young but will reward with careful cellaring.
“Given the alcohol, the wine is softer, rounder and hence more accessible, than normal for young semillon… it will have its day in the sun.” 89 points, to 2021, 2018 James Halliday Wine Companion “Mid palate has some flavour but it’s all about the fireworks on the finish. One thing is for sure: it doesn’t lack complexity.”, 91 points, to 2022, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

Glenguin Vineyard was first planted in the 1980s with an average vine age now over 25 years and each wine comes from a small individual vineyard block on the property. Organic and biodynamic farming principles are followed at Glenguin where things are still done by hand from planting through vine training to pruning and handpicking at vintage. The shiraz and semillon vines at Glenguin are directly descended from James Busby’s original planting at Kirkton in the 1820s. They are planted on their own roots on a unique combination of a raised gravel bench for shiraz with sandy loam over red basalt for Semillon. The name Glenguin comes from the original Scots Gaelic name of the Highland distillery now called “Glengoyne” (since 1909). Robin Tedder, Australia’s 7th Master of Wine, is the third Baron of Glenguin and grandson of Arthur Tedder the First Baron Marshal of the RAF and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in WW2. Arthur was born on the distillery property in 1890 and the Tedder family continues the association with great drinks through the vineyards at Glenguin in Australia’s oldest wine region, the Hunter Valley. Glenguin wines have won major Trophies including NSW and Boutique Wine Show Trophies for best white wine plus both Best Red and NSW Wine of the Year at the NSW Wine Awards for shiraz. Production is extremely limited with just a few hundred cases of each of our wines.
