Eden Valley is not the first name which springs to mind when one thinks Semillon, but this small production (600 bottles only) release suggests it is worth more attention. From vines planted in the Hill of Grace vineyard (contrary to common belief, the vineyard is not solely planted to Shiraz) in 1952, farmed by way of organic and biodynamic means, it sees ten months in oak. The wine offers a mix of lanolin, lemon, gentle nut and apricot kernel notes. A hint of dry herbals. Some early complexity. This fruit is usually blended into other wines but in 2012, the Henschkes considered it “too special”. Easy to see why.
Best drinking: should age superbly for two decades.
