Semillon has a very long and proud history in the Barossa Valley, and is home to the oldest vineyards of this variety anywhere in the world. It has been 21 years since Elderton last made a dry Semillon in 1996, as attentions were shifted to making a sweeter dessert style wine (Golden Semillon). The Ashmead family have now deemed 2017 the perfect time to again show a dedication to dry Semillon, and to try to protect and promote the history and traditions of this amazing Barossa varietal well into the future.

Winemakers Comments

Semillon has forever been a Barossa stalwart variety. Whilst its origins were in fortified winemaking, the last 40 or so years have seen the Barossa discover its versatility from everything in between a rich, round and warming dry white wine, to something that is lean and racy and begging to be eaten with oysters. Our latest incarnation is meant to be somewhere in the middle of both of these styles, with partial barrel fermentation giving texture but an acid backbone that makes it a refreshing drink that is
delicious right now.
