It's Semillon Captain but not as we know it. Don't be alarmed by the slightly milky looking fine sediment in the bottle's punt, it only makes the whole wine a little cloudy if you shake it! This is a magnificent thing. Early picked for rasping acidity coupled with magical richness on the mid palate, unfined and unfiltered, really dry and totally delicious. And only 11% ABV which makes a pleasant change. OK it's not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but who cares!
"There isn't much Semillon made in Argentina, at least at this level, but this makes you wonder why. Smoky, mineral and light-bodied, it's reminiscent of a young Hunter Valley style with notes of citrus peel and honeysuckle."
