Teusner Gabrielle Semillon 2012 Barossa Valley 95 points Halliday
We wanted to make sure that if you love your richer style whites, you don’t miss out on an aged Barossa Semillon. They’re not shy, boasting lots of honey-suckle flavour and a depth normally akin to Chardonnay. Don’t be fooled this isn’t a Chardonnay, the elegance of lime is unmistakable – that’s why Halliday couldn’t go past it, giving it a gold and 95 points.
“Barossa semillon is among Australia’s unsung heroes. It is a consistently delicious drink, sharing the melody of citrus, lanolin and, with age, the marmalade notes of its Hunter brethren. Barossa’s chord is richer, more textural and a bit waxy. And so this is…” James Halliday
