Elderton has a proud history of producing great dessert wines and we are extremely excited to now continue this journey with the eighth vintage produced with fruit from our own Greenock vineyard. This wine continues to be very popular, especially with visitors to Cellar Door.

Our Golden Semillon is not produced every year – only when vintage conditions are considered favourable for a later harvest of our Semillon, allowing the development of the unique characters required in this luscious style.

Winemakers Comments

Our Golden Semillon comes from 1985 and 1999 plantings of Semillon. As is typical of the 2020 vintage, crop levels were moderate in the Semillon. We cane cut portions of the two blocks at full flavour ripeness to enhance sugar concentration, whilst holding onto some natural acid in the resultant bunches. The fruit was then left to hang on the vine, concentrating flavours in the mild autumn weather. 2020 was very dry, which meant there was very little disease pressure, allowing the true fruit flavours to shine through in the 2020 Golden Semillon. - Jules Ashmead & Brock Harrison

A bold, lemon and honey nose with poached-pear, peach and lifted lemon-marmalade notes, as well as bergamot. The acidity holds rich, sweet lime-marmalade flavors in fresh mode. Some pastry to close.
